About this app

This program downloads latest dictionary files from the internet, and stores it in the SDCARD/dictdata folder, for Stardict apps to use. We assume that you already have or will install Stardict-compatible dictionary utilities (Eg: ebdic [Rated high], ColorDict, GoldenDict, GoldenDict paid ...) separately.

We use the indices maintained by the stardict-sanskrit project (See: https://github.com/indic-dict/stardict-sanskrit , https://sanskrit-coders.github.io/ ). [If you want to contribute new dictionaries to the stardict-sanskrit project or code to this app, that is welcome too - visit sites above.] Short-link to this app: bit.ly/SanskritStarDictUpdater

Note: Our indices allow for 113+ dictionaries in the following languages to be installed: Sanskrit, pALi, hindI, marathi, punjabi/ panjabi, nepali, oriya/ odiya, assamese/ Asamiya, kannaDa, telugu, tamiL / tamizh, malayalam, sinhala/ sinhalese, greek, latin, english (संस्कृतम्, पाली/ पाळी, हिन्दी, ਪੰਜਾਬੀ/ پنجابی‬, ଓଡ଼ିଆ, অসমীয়া, ಕನ್ನಡ, සිංහල, తెలుగు, தமிழ், മലയാളം, ελληνικά, lingua latīna) which you can search with the native script as well as with intuitive devanAgarI and roman transliterations.

Debutante in Sanskrit or versed scholar this is the #1 tool. Updated & found additional files a pleasant surprise. Defining Sanskrit words requires access to many texts. They're constantly adding new files. Couldn't be more pleased. Maybe I could, I found the PDFs from MW to be quite a nice addition. There's no reason the entire dictionary in PDF form couldn't be uploaded to our devices. Then click on PDF & we'd have access to the entire page offline. Please consider this valuable addition.

Peoples! Please stop rating low this app without knowing it! First learn how to use it! It's not a dictionary app but dictionary database, which is needed external dictionary viewer app! (Thanks for the developers, the contributors whoever involved in the database development & whoever compiled database to the stardict format!) Really thank You! You all are always in my heart! Especially whoever worked for Tamil (தமிழ்), Pali, Sanskrit & Hindi language!

The one and only app to support Indian languages in colordict. Thank you for adding Marathi language. Thank you for taking my colordict experience to next level. 🙏
