Hello all!

 I used to contribute to open source projects like Gnome and LibreOffice, translating UI and manuals from english to spanish.

To make this work I need an offline dictionary. When I was using Mint, I worked with an application called Babiloo, but I can't find it in Fedora. Can somebody suggest to me an offline dictionary? I'm using Fedora 16.

What is the problem with Babiloo? I know it isn't in Fedora, but it runs very well for me, and you don't even need to install, just do 'python', and put the dict files in '$HOME/.babiloo/dicts' (or use its own downloader), that's all. Hope this helps :)

You have motivated me, and I (finally!) made an RPM package for Babiloo. You can search for it here, but be careful when installing because the package is signed:

I know OpenDict and GoldenDict however these programs behave as dictionaries managers because you need import dictionary file before you can search words for translations. Luckily some dictionaries files can be founded with friendly licence so you can use them without breaking law.
