Currently, KTranslator supports these types of dictionaries (plugins):
This is the dictionary file of DICT servers. You can get one of these dictionaries in DICT website or FreeDict website. If you choose to use one of these dictionaries, select the .index file, put the other file (.dict or .dict.dz) in the same directory and chooses Dictd plugin.
Here are links to dictionary files. Uncompress the file before using with KTranslator.
This is the dictionary file of StarDict. To use this type of dictionary, select the .ifo file and put all files in same directory. Currently, KTranslator only supports dictionaries with sametypesequence = m (most of them if not all) and don't support tree dictionaries (I found only one). Look for StarDict dictionaries in the page of program.
Here are some links to StarDict dictionaries. To get others, visit the StarDict page.
This is the dictionary file of Sdictionary program. Sdictionary has only one file, a .dct file. To use this type of dictionary, select the .dct file. Sdictionary has a community with a lot of dictionaries (more than 180).
Here are links to some dictionaries. To get others, visit the Sdict community site.
This is the dictionary files used by Babylon program. KTranslator can only use the .dic files, not the new .bgl files. Note that Babylon dictionaries are actually 2 files, english.dic and engtoXXX.dic (the XXX is some language). You have to choose the engtoXXX.dic, place the english.dic in the same directory that the other file and choose Babylon plugin.
I have to highlight this. English.dic is not a dictionary. Actually, it is a index for other files.
Here are links to Babylon dictionary files. Uncompress the file before using with KTranslator.
You can get one of these files in WordTrans page too.
This type of dictionary is a plain text dictionary file. The file has one entry per line in following format:
With this plugin you can modify the dictionary file (i.e. add new entries) while KTranslator is running.
Here are some dictionary files converted from Freedict project. Uncompress the file before using with KTranslator.
