The OpenThesaurus German Dictionary Plugin (formerly Thesaurus Deutsch) extends Apple's Dictionary application (Dictionary.app) with a German thesaurus.
  • You can search for every synonym not just the primary word.
  • You can search for parts of a hyphen delimited term or a word which is not located at the beginning of a term (as Dictionary normally does).
  • This is a offline dictionary, so you don't need an Internet connection.
The dictionary content is based on the online dictionary www.openthesaurus.de by Daniel Naber.

I strongly dislike the idea that I must enter my user password to install this. Other Dictionary plugins simply have to be moved into the Library>Dictionaries folder so there is no possibility of unlocking my computer for malware .

The download link is broken, possibly due to initial installation problems.
I found a mirror over here:

Sorry, the Download link should point to http://tekl.de/OpenThesaurusDeutsch but MacUpdate changed it to the temporary link. I resubmitted the link.

Such a great plug-in! Just an add-on to the standard dictionary and not a separate application. Hopefully the GE-EN Dictionary will get an update soon as well.

Just great! Thanks to the developer!

Archive appears to be damaged. Archive Utility extracts a .cpgz file. bunzip2 extracts a .dmg with a "trailing garbage after EOF ignored" warning; opening it won't find a filesystem.

remove the .bz2 suffix from the downloaded file and the .dmg will mount

That worked -- thanks. I'd only tried removing the .cpgz extension after Archive Utility had extracted that file.

I hope the MacUpdate Admin will add

AddType application/x-apple-diskimage .dmg

to the server configuration or their referer script, as this will fix the problem.

I hope there are no problems anymore as the file is provided as a zip archive now.

The latest upload of Thesaurus is still no good. It still makes Safari load a page of code instead of downloading normally. Why not make it a .zip archive?

The developer uploaded a file that makes Safari go nuts. Fills a page with code instead of downloading normally. And there's no way to contact the developer.

I'm sorry to be dense, but I've no idea how to install this. When I download the plugin with Camino, I get a "simple text file."

Is there something wrong?

Thanks!

Try to rename it to anything.zip so you can double-click the archive. If Camino want to display the file itself try downloading via the context menu.

I'm sorry to have troubled you. It downloaded perfectly with Safari, if not Camino, and installed just as it should.

Thank you again. It's marvellous.
