Any plans for adding other languages dictionaries?

Asked by Dave Gómez on 2011-02-06

One thing I hate from Gnome Dictionary is the only support language is English, I speak Spanish, I need an Spanish dictionary. The same thing happens with Purple.

Do you guys have any plans to add another dictionaries to this beautiful app?

If you have plans to do it, here you can find the most complete dictionaries in Spanish language.

De nada (I don't speak Spanish, if you were curious)

This is a major goal of mine. This will happen when Purple gets re-written into the Vala programming language, and will have a pluggable backend. That means that one can add a new dictionary source (such as the one you linked, theoretically) with relatively little effort by a developer. This is a pretty major technical undertaking, but it's in the pipeline :)
