Feature-rich dictionary lookup program
  20 reviews

* 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.
* 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 5 interface.

Fantastic free dictionary! The best thing of all is that I can actually use any number of dictionaries through this one interface, I only need their databases!

I consider it a must-have for anybody who’s using more than his mother tongue. It’s nothing else than a fast but specialized web browser that displays the results of a query neatly arranged in a single tab. As a consequence you’ll have to dig yourself for off-line dictionaries, but you could as well add online sources. I’m using lots of dictionaries, online resources, and local programs via GoldenDict — and it works like a charm.

This is not an alternative to Lingoes. It isn’t even close. Lingoes is free. I don’t know how they do it, but they do it. There are lots of free programs, etc. for Linux, why is it that a Windows program can be free, but you can’t find a Linux version that is? Dictionary sources are too limited. Plus many features included in Lingoes is missing. The user interface is not user friendly, though I suppose if you have dictionaries it may be less so. Maybe I’m just spoiled after using Lingoes. Did it ever occur to the developer of Golden Dictionary to work with the developer of Lingoes to create a Linux version of Lingoes?

Çevrimdışı çalışabilmesi güzel ancak sözlük eklemeniz gerek. Bana göre şimdilik çevrimdışı sözlükler arasında en iyisi bu. Tavsiye ederim.
