Title: need german dictionary
Post by: Teskal on February 22, 2008, 03:28:16 PM
Hi,
the links from the stackz-homepage for the German Dictionaries are dead.

Could someone send me the dictionaries?

I would prefer the bibiko.de-dictionary.

There is a version in Jim Breens collection, but it seems to include Umlaut characters. The Stackz Dictionary uses the Japanese font for all text, so it will try to interpret the Umlaut as Japanese EUC which leads to garbage. Changing the dictionary will not be possible for me within the next few weeks.

Note that you can open the file in an Editor and automatically replace all to ae, to oe and to ue (distinction of upper and lowercase might be needed). Then it will work.

It can be found at Jim Breens nihongo ftp archive http://ftp.monash.edu.au/pub/nihongo.
