Pocketdict Dictionaries <-

About

This page provides additional dictionaries for CelloSoft's freeware program PocketDict. PocketDict is a tool for the Pocket PC handheld device which allows you to find definitions for words.

The dictionaries on this page were collected from the internet in their original form and then transformed to a format suitable for reading with PocketDict using the indexer provided by CelloSoft on their homepage.

News

September 11, 2006

  • Broken links to the OpenOffice Thesaures have been fixed.
  • New PocketDict packs have been released. They now contain all the individual PocketDict dictionaries.

August 22, 2006

  • I've put online the dictionary packs which contain all the dictionaries listed on this page except, for now, the OpenOffice Thesaur dictionaries. A new version including _all_ dictionaries will be released As Soon As Possible.
  • Some links on this page where broken. I've fixed them.
  • The development release of PocketDict-dictionaries v1.0 is also available now. It contains the original dictionary sources, scripts for conversion and additional documentation on the dictionary.data format and some other stuff.

Copyright

CelloSoft's PocketDict is copyright by CelloSoft.

The conversion scripts used to convert the original form of the dictionaries on this page to the PocketDict format have been created by Ferry Boender and are released into the Public Domain. This means you can do with the scripts whatever you like.

The converted dictionaries are and remain the copyright of their original owners unless they are in the public domain. Each dictionary has a different copyright and a different distribution license. Permission to modify, copy and/or redistribute these dictionaries depends on each separate dictionaries license. Please read the README file for each dictionary to find out more about the copyright. On this page I'll briefly list whether the dictionaries are redistributable, meaning you can put them on your own homepage or not (free of cost at all times).

Notes

Not all dictionaries are complete. Many times PocketDict didn't support certain features so I had to remove certain words from the dictionaries. Among the things removed are:

  • Accented letters have been translated to their non-accented equivalents. Update: I've just read that PocketDict supports UTF8. I hadn't noticed that before. I'll will translate the dictionaries with international characters to UTF8.
  • Words with certain strange characters (such as the '>') sign have been removed.
  • Large dictionaries have been abridged or cut up into multiple parts if neccessary.

PocketDict mirror

Since things have the tendency to disappear on the Internet, I've decided to mirror PocketDict here.
