Dictionary conversion help for Stardict


Can anyone help me convert a Welsh-English dictionary into Stardict's format?

I also have an English-Welsh dictionary that could be converted (I need to tidy it up a little)

Could I send them by e-mail?

I just can't figure out how to do it.

The silly thing is that Ktranslator would work fine, just it does not do fuzzy searches. I like Stardict, but don't know how to convert a tab separated file into the right Stardict format.

Grep is great but unfortunately it means opening up a terminal and typing in the word (rather than just select & click under Stardict/Ktranslator).

Thanks for any help.

You need the package called stardict-tools.
