I have used this for several years now, and have been very happy with it. I seems to still be fine on OSX 10.7 and 10.8. It works smoothly, and as a very weak speaker of Chinese, it helps me find what I need to communicate with my friends.

Can anyone give link to get the previous version. This does not work anymore and there is no way to contact the authors at their website, I triedto find but their comment function is also broken! Thanks! This does not work on 10.5.8 anymore.

This latest release systematically crashes the Dictionary app as soon as I try starting a research on Pingguo - PPC iMac (G5), 10.5.8.

Confirmed. Unfortunately I do not have any version of this now as don't know where to get the old version. This new version published earlier this year crashes on my computer not only Dictionary but Finder also (as when you start writing things on Spotlight, it looks information in Dictionary and that happens to crash whole thing). I am running Os X 10.5.8 also on Macbook 2008.

Works like a charm, directions clear. Helps when I'm browsing Chinese forums trying to find firmware updates for my Asian-market phone - Actually makes the Dictionary app useful for me!
