GNOME-Ding is a graphical tool for spellchecking and translation of (single) words.
For spellchecking GNOME-Ding will by used a installed aspell-dictionary. For translation, GNOME-Ding will use a own dictionary, that will based on a Ding-Dictionary (Ding-Projekt). At moment, GNOME-Ding will support German/Englisch dictionary and a very simple German/Latin dictionary.
The used Ding-Dictionary is a little bit modify, i.e. for better connection with UTF8-Charset. As additional gnome-ding will contain also other dictionaries like de-fr, or en-ar and some more but I need some help to check the correctness of this dictionaries.
As another extension, GNOME-Ding will come with a german thesaurus, based on OOo.
GNOME-Ding is intended by Ding-Projekt, and g2ding from Oliver Grawert.
GNOME-Ding you can easy extend for more languages and dictionaries. The Programm works under Gnome2, a lookup is very easy, only input the word and press the search-button.
