GoldenDict is a feature-rich dictionary lookup program for Windows or Linux


A feature-rich dictionary lookup program, supporting multiple dictionaries' formats, perfect article rendering with the complete markup, illustrations and other content retained, and allowing to type in words without any accents or correct case.

The program has the following features:

    Use of WebKit for an accurate articles' representation, complete with all formatting, colors, images and links.
    Support of multiple dictionary file formats, namely:
        Babylon .BGL files, complete with images and resources
        StarDict .ifo/.dict./.idx/.syn dictionaries
        Dictd .index/.dict(.dz) dictionary files
        ABBYY Lingvo .dsl source files, together with abbreviations. The files can be optionally compressed with dictzip. Dictionary resources can be packed together into a .zip file.
        ABBYY Lingvo .lsa/.dat audio archives. Those can be indexed separately, or be referred to from .dsl files.
    Support for Wikipedia, Wiktionary, or any other MediaWiki-based sites to perform lookups in.
    Ability to use arbitrary websites as dictionaries via templated Url patterns.
    Ability to run arbitrary external programs for audio playback or content generation (text-to-speech, man pages etc) (use the latest Git version for this)
    Support for looking up and listening to pronunciations from
    Hunspell-based morphology system, used for word stemming and spelling suggestions.
    Ability to index arbitrary directories with audio files for pronunciation lookups.
    Full Unicode case, diacritics, punctuation and whitespace folding. This means the ability to type in words without any accents, correct case, punctuation or spaces (e.g. typing 'Grussen' would yield 'grüßen' in German dictionaries).
    Scan popup functionality. A small window pops up with the translation of a word chosen from another application.
    Support for global hotkeys. You can spawn the program window at any point, or directly translate a word from the clipboard.
    Tabbed browsing in a modern Qt 4 interface.
    Cross-platform: Linux/X11 and Windows + portable to others.
    Free software: GNU GPLv3+ license.
