    Hey guys, i was wondering if anyone knows how to add more languages to the Dictionary application.

    I was specifically looking for a Portuguese language pack, but after searching in Apple's website I only managed to find one (yes, one) language pack for that application; isn't that odd? I use the Dictionary application quite a lot for English words, too bad i can't do it for my native language.

    Anyway, cheers and thanks in advance

    just the other day i was adding a few french dictionaries for my sister

    here are the instructions

    there is a link there to a site which hosts various dictionaries.

    slightly off topic but the dictionary app with its built in wikipedia and the ability to other languages is quite an app
