1 Answer 1

Basically, you have to download the dictionary from OpenOffice website, uncompress the .oxt file using 7zip (or change the extension to .zip and uncompress it), and copying the .aff and .dic file to a folder (I recommend to create a folder on dropbox so you can reference that folder from any computer that you are using) that you will later you should set up on the Texstudio application.

You can find a far better explanation on "Dictionary for TeXstudio: “No dictionary Available” " (see @Sid comment) or here
