Could any users of 4.1.1 (Yakju or Takju) please upload a screenshot or list of the available languages in Settings / Language & Input / Android keyboard / Add-on dictionaries?

Sorry for the mangled special characters!

It seems that Danish and Swedish were left out, but Norwegian included? Lucky norwegians!

On 4.2 I have Danish as well as Swedish, and I'm using Danish.

Also as of ICS you should be able to simply install third party dictionaries packed into apk files, but it has not seen any wide adoption as far as I know.

Yep - I've also been using the new dictionaries introduced in 4.2. Going Takju / Yakju was really worth it.

Also read about the apk-method, but I've yet to come across any actual application.
