GoldenDict vs Babylon opinions
Amazing. GoldenDict can index the Babylon .BGL and many other dictionary files.
Does the job, indexes .BGL files like a boss, and can add more sources (Wikipedia) or dictionaries.
Goldendict is good, but is not the same as Babylon. Babylon is strictly a translator and not trying to be like wikipedia.
dict.cc is not only an online dictionary translating from English and German to 21 languages. Its an attempt to create a platform where users from all over the world can share their knowledge in the field of translations.
