Publisher description for Engrusdict for Linux
Engrusdict stands for English - Russian dictionary (approx. 22000 entries). It can translate from Russian to English (approx. 31000 entries) as well. It's based on the Freedict dictionary (?? Tom van der Meijden, 1997, 2000). This is a freeware bidirectional dictionary between English and other languages. More precisely, this dictionary works only on Windows and if you try to run it with Wine you may have a lot of troubles to display Cyrillic characters correctly. That's why I have decided to make an X11 based GUI for this dictionary. It is possible to enter Russian (Cyrillic) characters if you don't have Russian Keyboard but it also supports Russian keyboards with ISO 8859-5, KOI-8 and Windows 1251 encodings. You will need the following things in order to compile and run the dictionary: english_russian.wb and russian_english.wb: these are the database files and are a part of the original Freedict dictionary. I couldn't find any information about their license but I believe they can be redistributed freely for non-commercial purposes. Both files are already included in this distribution, but you may also get them if you download Dict_rus.exe, run this self extracting .exe file (under Windows, of course) and copy the files into appropriate directory (see installataion instructions). XForms Library. The GUI is based on this library because it simplifies development of X applications. You may download it from here. GCC or other C compiler and make XWindow system with its include files and libraries At least one Cyrillic font which supports ISO 8859-5 encoding. See Installation section for further Details.
