OpenThesaurus German

Dictionary_Plugins.html
 

This plugin extends Apple‘s Dictionary application (Dictionary.app) with a German thesaurus.

  1. You can search for every synonym not just the primary word.

  2. You can search for parts of a hyphen delimited term or a word which is not located at the beginning of a term (as Dictionary normally does).

  3. You don‘t need an internet connection, because the dictionary is included in the plugin.

The dictionary content is based on the online dictionary www.openthesaurus.de by Daniel Naber.

Installation

The installation is very easy. Just download the disk image and double-click the installer. After launching Dictionary.app you have to enable  Thesaurus Deutsch in the preferences.

Unistallation

You can uninstall the plugin by deleting OpenThesaurus Deutsch.dictionary from
/Library/Dictionaries.
