I don't know what babylon is, but kde includes a great online dictionary that searches a few different online texts. It's called kdict. You may already have it installed.

As far as I can tell, babylon:
http://www.babylon.com/
Is not free, however there is a free GTK front end for it:
http://fjolliton.free.fr/babytrans/#p3
GTK just means there is a graphical tool to use the dictionary files.

And from the looks of Babylon.com it is likely you were using an online dictionary before...
Unless you were sportin an extra 40 bux for it?
https://buy.babylon.com/index.php

Cool

I don't mean that it is a web page, what I mean is it is a locally installed program that queries the databases of a few well known dictionaries, so, you type in "preantidisenstablishmentarianism" and it will spit back a few definitions.

from the looks of babylon though...it appears that what you are looking for is a translator no?

I found this: http://www.translator.cx/

but alas it is web-based

yet another link that may help:
http://wordtrans.sourceforge.net/

I have RH9 and did the full install. I have in the accessories tab a dictionary that is not an online one. It is the Gnome Dictionary 2.2.0.3 I'm guessing if you have RH9 disk you should have it.
