Other dictionaries?
Authored by: MacUser06 on Nov 16, '12 06:04:57AM

Hello. I just want to add that the icon that I display in the dialog is copyright Apple. Inc.

I hope I haven't done anything wrong, since I don't charge for the script, and the icon is preinstalled on every machine, and gives a good hint about what the script is doing.

If you share the script as a script, the receipient will have to recompile it, since the icon is stored as a property, holding a reference to the icon on your machine, which it obviously won't find elsewhere.

But that isn't so obvious for a user novice to Apple Script, I should really have stated that above, together with the copyright of Apple for the icon.

Thanks!

I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I just wanted to clarify that I meant add-on dictionaries for Dictionary.app, such as are mentioned in this comment. I don't know how (or if) that affects the script that you wrote, but I thought I should mention it.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll have a second look at it. I have managed to add some dicitonaries myself. (LOLspeak, BabylonEnglish, and American Idioms.)

I found the process hard. I don't know how to set the default language or anything, at this moment, but that is things I would have to take into account.

I hope, and believe that Apple will make the dictionary a multilingual experience. It is one of those details that sets Os X out from rest of the pack!
