Untested: try specifying the exceptions first, load mainlanguage later?

Or, use \hyphenation?

Have you tested any if these?

Or, you could use multiple exception blocks...

Betreff: [NTG-context] Hyphenation in multi-language projects


please have a look at this minimal example.

The idea is to set the hyphenation for certain words regardless of the language that is used in the surrounding paragraphs.

In this example it should stay: «steff-en»

How do i set this to all non-english paragraphs (without using \hyphenation on each language-switch)?
