Which version of tesseract are you using? If v2.x, follow the advise
Otherwise, I think you have to unpack the .traineddata file, copy in
your word list, then repack. Something like this should work (from
your tessdata directory:
combine_tessdata -u eng.
The new eng.traineddata will now include your words.
Hope this helps, and is clear enough.
