In Debian you have the dictd package which is a daemon that runs locally on the machine and you can install various differnet dictionaries that it will use to serve up the definitions perhaps Fedora has a similar option. For the French-English Dictionary there are also a couple of options I would check to see if the same applies.
apt-cache search French English Dictionary
