Every time I doubleclick on the file to open it, it looks like it opens but nothing happens. MacDICT doesn't run. 2.9.1 worked fine but this one doesn't even open.

This is an absolutely fantastic program. It is completely stable, provides exactly what it says it will do, and I for one, am vey grateful that the developer has made this available to thoes of us who cannot afford a program like this.

I still can't understand why some people need to find fault with everything in life, especially things that are offered as a "gift."

Thank you mr. Developer, for this great program, that I use daily, and ammost grateful for!

Whether it's a gift or not is irrelevant, it simply does a lousy job on translation, and to imply that "some people are looking for a fault in everything in life" is ridiculous and petty - the reviewe column is there precisely for this - to review the software, so let's leave the personal stuff out of it.

Ironically, this review has multiple spelling and grammatical errors...

Maybe it works for English word definitions, however, the translation Spanish-to English and vice-versa is a disaster - it doesn't recognise 90% of the Spanish words, and the ones it recognises it translates wrong.
my Sherlock that came with the computer is equally bad, why would I need this application?
It's a shame that practically all software written these days is strictly English oriented.

Don't you think it's a stupid argument? I'm a comsumer and I have reviewed this software as such. If you don't like your car and somebody says to you "Well, you should build your own car." - what would you think of that?

Don't you think it's a stupid comment? If you want Spanish software, fine, but don't fault someone else's work because it doesn't do something you want it to do.

Most software is written in English because more people in the developed world speak English than any other language. Sad but true.

Your strongly-negative-but-irrelevant review detracts from the rating of an excellent piece of code for reasons that have nothing to do with why the code was written. I imagine if people reviewed your work in a similar way you'd be pissed, so try to do unto others.
