Free Dictionaries, Free Knowledge
The FreeDict project strives to be the most comprehensive source of truly free bilingual dictionaries. They are not just free of charge, but they give you the right to study, change and modify them, as long as you guarantee others these freedoms, too. Founded in 2000, FreeDict nowadays provides over 140 dictionaries in about 45 languages and thanks to its members, grows continuously. Learn how to become a part of FreeDict.
Use Wherever You Want
FreeDict dictionaries offer you the greatest deal of flexibility possible: you can use them both on your computer or on your mobile phone and all the lookups are offline. This means that you can travel abroad without the fear that your provider will make you pay a lot just for a few dictionary lookups. You will even be independent from a network connection.
Use For Any Purpose
Our data is useful for a wide range of applications which is made possible through the use of the generic TEI XML format. This allows us to export our data into any format and for any purpose, be it an electronic/paper dictionary or a spell checker.
