I've got problems making `TexMaker / MikTeX 2.9` use polish hyphenation rules. As from what I've read on this forum (e.g. here), `babel` package should automatically load polish hyphenation rules after setting:

``````\usepackage[polish]{babel}
``````

but it doesn't seem to do so. Until now, I always end up creating a long list of

``````\hyphenation{ wordslist }
``````

in the preamble to correct for mis-hyphenated words. Isn't there a way to configure `babel / TexMaker / MikTeX` to load a specific file, i.e. hyph_pl_PL.dic? I recall such a possibility in TeXnic Center (correct me if I'm wrong).

Check in the `.log` file for a "No hyphenation patterns" message. –  egreg Mar 20 '12 at 8:46
Go to the MiKTeX Settings in your start menu and check if `polish` is enabled. Then, `babel` should work as you directed it. Texmaker has nothing to do with hyphenation in your document, and neither has TeXnicCenter. They only provide spell-checking for your source code. –  doncherry Mar 20 '12 at 8:46
Yes, Polish is enabled. Nevertheless some (pretty many) words get hyphenated wrong. Can it be the problem is OS specific? I just installed TexMaker on Windows (created the question while on Linux) and hyphenation looks OK –  mmm Mar 20 '12 at 14:04
@egreg `.log` states hyphenation for polish is loaded –  mmm Mar 20 '12 at 14:05
@mmm Can you produce some examples, please? My suspect is that you're inadvertently changing the language. –  egreg Mar 20 '12 at 14:06
