What is an AFF file?

An AFF file is a spellcheck dictionary file used by Kingsoft WPS Office and Apache OpenOffice, which are free Office suite applications. It contains information that describes the accompanying .DIC spellcheck dictionary file.

More Information

The AFF and DIC files are used to add new spellchecking dictionaries for different languages, such as Italian and French, to WPS Office. Users typically download .ZIP dictionary packages that contain the AFF and DIC files, extract the contents, then install them in WPS Office.
