can you recommend a dictionary to be downloaded and can it be linked to Cafe Tran?

I am new at working with CafeTran Espresso and I hope it is not a stupid question.
Is it possible to link CafeTran with a downloaded dictionary, so by translating the program makes links to the dictionary? And if yes, do you know a good online dictionary to be downloaded on a Mac?


If you do SAP stuff, these two are interesting!


SAP_ Dictionary.xls = 16,000 entries (German, English, French, Italian and Spanish)

sapdict.xls = 25,000 entries (German/English)


[Thanks, Wordbook.nl!]

Hello and welcome. Do you have any particular dictionary in mind?

Hello Hand and thank you fo replying. I am mainly translating English into German...
Do you have some suggestions?

Thank you
Rebecca

 

About the linking: You would have to ask the publisher. I guess that when the dictionary engine is good, it can be used as a service (that means: you can assign a keyboard shortcut to the dictionary and every word that is selected in CafeTran, will be searched in the dictionary).


Are you a member of the BDÜ? I'm asking because they offer (offered?) some interesting dictionaries too. Online access.


Thank you Hans, I will do that.

 

Aha, I understand now. You are not necessarily looking for a (bilingual, English-German) dictionary that is hosted online, but just a dictionary that you can use inside CafeTran.


Hmm, there are many options in that case.


For example, for only €7.50, you can get Henk Sanderson's excellent IATE extraction, "English to German IATE terminology package" via https://www.tm-town.com/terminology-marketplace?utf8=✓&marketplace_language_pair=English+to+German&seller=All (which contains a whopping 997,266 term concepts!)


Also read this page for info: https://www.tm-town.com/terminology-marketplace/en_de


I have a few with German-English on my website, Wordbook.nl, for example this one:


http://wordbook.nl/content/Health-insurance-glossary-(Dutch-English-German)(244-entries).txt


I also recently created a massive collection of translation memories of English-German patent-related material, which is available from here: http://www.proz.com/forum/translator_resources/279716-tmx_from_parallel_corpus_of_patent_translation_resource-page3.html


This site also has a ton of downloadable bilingual dictionaries, many of them English-German:

If you need a bit of help getting them CafeTran-ready, just ask!

Also just noticed that Oxforddictionaries.com offers a pretty good looking German-English and English-German dictionary (w/ 840,000 words, phrases, and translations, including idioms):
