I think it ought to be, at least, script-dependent. My two main
languages are Hebrew and English, which are written in different scripts
(Hebrew and Latin). If I write a word in Latin script it's not going to
appear in a Hebrew dictionary and vice versa. In such cases it would be
preferable to automate the process instade of asking the user to do
something that's quite easy for us to do for him/her.
