Converting Stardict dictionaries to DfM ones
« on: 03. March 2010, 16:33:01 »
Ok it's just a simple process. You will need the tool StarDict Editor so download it here.
Extract all files to a folder and then launch the file stardict-editor.exe, switch to the tab DeCompile.
Now look at the dictionary files of StarDict you got, there should be 3 files : *.idx, *.ifo, *.dz.
Rename the *.dz file to *.gz. Use WinZip or WinRAR to extract the *.dict file inside.
Rename all the *.dict, *.ifo, *.idx files to a same name.
Back to the StarDict Editor program, click Browse and select the *.ifo file and hit Decompile.
You will see a new *.txt file inside the folder.
Use it with DfM DictionaryGeneration.
Cheer ;)
