About this app

A version fixing recent article display problem is available for download at the following location: http://goldendict.mobi/downloads/android/free/GoldenDict-1.6.8-Android-4.4+-free.apk . It has to be installed manually at the present time. There's normally no need to uninstall the existing app before installing the update, but if the installation fails, the existing app should be uninstalled first.


The fastest and most multi-format dictionary app on the market. Fully supports Lingvo, Babylon, StarDict, Lingoes and Dictd dictionary files. Articles shown with full formatting, colors, images and sounds. Lookups are blazing fast. You can now carry all the dictionaries you want together with you on your Android device!

Note: the app is a shell and comes with no dictionaries, much like a music player does not come with music. You use the files you already have, or the ones you can get on the internet.

Supported formats:

* Lingoes .LD2 files
* Babylon .BGL files
* ABBYY Lingvo .LSD, .DSL, .LSA and .DAT files
* StarDict files
* Dictd files
* Hunspell .AFF/.DIC morphology files

Just copy those files on your SD card, in the GoldenDict directory!

Features:

* All content is shown in full formatting, with images and sounds. We don't compromise on quality.
* It's fast. It flies when you have a dozen of dictionaries, and can handle hundreds of dictionaries simultaneously fairly well, too.
* The program will understand your typing no matter how you do it - forget about diacritics, case or punctuation!
* In-program popup mode is supported. Configure your e-book reader to use "ColorDict 3" as your dictionary interface, and GoldenDict will pop up.
* Translating from clipboard is easy - just press and hold "Search" button on your device!

Permissions:

* WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - to create index files for your dictionaries
* WAKE_LOCK - to ensure you phone doesn't sleep while indexing is in progress (it's a one-time operation)
* INTERNET, PHONE_STATE - to show ads

This is a free, ad-sponsored version. The number of active dictionaries is limited to 5. Buy the paid version for ad-free unlimited dictionaries experience. If you want to test-drive the paid version, you can buy it and and then get a refund within two weeks, no questions asked. See paid version description for more information.

SUPPORT: If you have any difficulty or problem, instead of leaving negative review, write an email to support@goldendict.org, and we'll sort out everything. Enjoy!

NEEDS Settings Option: "GO TO ANY WORD ON CLICK". So no LOOKUP popup dialog_box & goes straight to the word we click. Top apps on many platforms have this although this app is by far the best. But will be much better with no Lookup Popup waste of time. Default for option in settings can be off . Try it for yourself & you'll love it. Buy the Pro, like I did a long time ago.

Good app. Has been my companion since 2013. I wonder if/ when the developer plan to add support of mdx/mdd formats. The PC version truly supports mdx formats. It would be more convenient to have support for mdx formats. I have alot of old and rare dictfiles in goldict supported formats. It is difficult to convert all to mdx and sometime breaks the files. If mdx support is added, users wont have go through hassale of switching apps. Kindly provide support for mdx files. Thank You. Stay Safe.

It was an amazing app, I have been using it for years. But on my new Android phone it just stop working. First clearing all data helped, then I had to re-install it and finally I just see blank page instead of translation, when I select a word for translation!
