Xiao CiDian Mac Desktop 1.7 Released

Friday, September 30th, 2011 | News

I’ve just put up the latest Mac Desktop release of 小词典. The new version, 1.7, is just a dictionary refresh of the latest CC-CEDICT dictionary.

小词典 Desktop will only work with Mac OS X Leopard and later (I am using it on Lion without any issues).

You can download it from the download page, be sure to read the installation guide (If this is your first install). Checkout the FAQ if you run into problems.

Apologies for posting here but I could see no other contact details. I’m curious about a Linux version as I saw a youtube video of 小词典 being searched from the gnome dictionary. Is there a package or binary available for this somewhere?

Hi Urban, I had a beta / test version working, but I took it down as it was a bit of a PITA to get it working properly. If you want to take a stab at it, you can find everything on github: http://github.com/robrohan/cedictToDict.org

Cheers, rob

Hello Rob,

I used an older version of your great dictionary on Snow. Now I am using Lion but I cannot right click to check a character from the web page. Instead I have to copy and paste to spotlight. Is there a way to link them?

Thanks Hei

Hi Rob, Scratch that off its working now =) I think I got to close all my windows first to take effect. Thanks for your great dictionary
