dehyph – German hyphenation patterns for traditional orthography
The package provides older hyphenation patterns for the German language. Please note that by default only pdfLaTeX uses these patterns (mainly for backwards compatibility).
The older packages ghyphen and gnhyph are now bundled together with dehyph, and are no longer be updated.
Both XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX use the current German hyphenation patterns taken from Hyphenation patterns in UTF-8, and using the Experimental hyphenation patterns for the German language package it is possible to make pdfLaTeX use the new German patterns as well.
