GoldenDict

GoldenDict


The fastest and most multi-format dictionary app on the market. Fully supports Lingvo, Babylon, StarDict, Lingoes and Dictd dictionary files. Articles shown with full formatting, colors, images and sounds. Lookups are blazing fast. You can now carry all the dictionaries you want together with you on your Android device!

Note: the app is a shell and comes with no dictionaries, much like a music player does not come with music. You use the files you already have, or the ones you can get on the internet.

This is the paid version, with no ads and unlimited dictionaries. There's also a free version available - try it out first before purchasing this one.

Supported formats:

* Lingoes .LD2 files
* Babylon .BGL files
* ABBYY Lingvo .LSD, .DSL, .LSA and .DAT files
* StarDict files
* Dictd files
* Hunspell .AFF/.DIC morphology files

Just copy those files on your SD card, in the GoldenDict directory!

Features:

* All content is shown in full formatting, with images and sounds. We don't compromise on quality.
* It's fast. It flies when you have a dozen of dictionaries, and can handle hundreds of dictionaries simultaneously fairly well, too.
* The program will understand your typing no matter how you do it - forget about diacritics, case or punctuation!
* In-program popup mode is supported. Configure your e-book reader to use "ColorDict 3" as your dictionary interface, and GoldenDict will pop up.
* Translating from clipboard is easy - just press and hold "Search" button on your device!

Permissions:

* WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - to create index files for your dictionaries
* WAKE_LOCK - to ensure you phone doesn't sleep while indexing is in progress (it's a one-time operation)
* READ_PHONE_STATE - for license check.

This is a full, paid version. It has no ads and can support an unlimited amount of dictionaries! If you need to test-drive the program, either try the free version first, or just purchase this paid version now and then ask for a refund within two weeks (see below).

Doesn't work on nexus 4 After install doesn't start. Shows some cryptic message about copying dictionary to SD card to GoldenDict folder. First of all nexus 4 doesn't have an external SD card. Secondly how should I know where is this folder? Is it too much trouble for developer to provide an exact path or even more professional approach to open a dialog that allow to configure that folder. I really regret that I have bought that application. Don't waste your money!

The only thing I dislike about this app is that it refuses to open dictionary records with a slash in a title (e.g. "and/or", "did/have done" etc.). Otherwise perfect.

入正了。 4.99刀不便宜,但这词典还是值的。唯一可惜的,是移动版不支持mdx格式,而且也没iOS版。
