10.5: Rename the dictionaries in Dictionary Apps
While working with Dictionary this weekend, I discovered that you can rename the dictionaries, as you can see in this screenshot:



To rename a dictionary, just Control-click on its name and choose Edit Label from the pop-up menu -- there's also a Revert to Original Label option, for when you decide the default names are fine. I'm not sure exactly why one might want to do this, though -- perhaps if you've installed another dictionary and want to give it a unique name?

Does anyone know of other dictionaries that can be obtained (especially in the UK)?

Yes, How could one get different dictionaries (like Spanish, French or German)?
