Those single quotes inside double quotes look suspicious.  They don't
belong to the file name.

Also, you don't need "-i" "utf-8" in the list of arguments, since that
is the default.

Finally, I'd suggest to use dictionary names that are identical to the
file names, i.e. "de_DE_frami" instead of "german" etc.  Then you
could simply use nil for all the switches (assuming you install the
dictionaries in the directory where hunspell expects to find them).
