Dictconv 0.2

Dictconv is a program to convert a dictionary from one format to another.
Dictconv is a program to convert a dictionary from one format to another. Dictconv supports conversion from Babylon glossaries (.bgl) to stardict.

KTranslator should support any language (I hope that) and come with a plugin system, to ease the addition of new dictionaries.

Dictconv is a small program to convert a dictionay file type in another dictionary file type.


$ ./configure --help
$ ./configure [options]
$ make all install


$ dictconv original_file.ext target_file.ext

The program detects the type of dictionary by its extension:

.bgl for Babylon glossaries
.ifo for StarDict dictionaries
.dct for Sdictionary dictionaries.
.tei for Freedict dictionaries (XML format)

Currently, it only supports converting from Babylon glossaries, Sdictionary dictionaries and Freedict dictionaries to StarDict dictionaries. More file types will be added in new versions.

When converting to StarDict, the .dict file is not compressed. This feature will be added in future. If you want to compress this file, use dictzip program:

$ dictzip target_file.dict

The program is in early development stage. So, you will find bugs. If you find a bug, please report it.

What's New in This Release:

Several bugs were fixed, mainly in the Babylon glossary reader.
CMake is now supported in addition to GNU tools.
Support for converting to plain text dictionaries and to DICT dictionaries was added.
