I recently downloaded BeoLingus German --> English for my mac dictionary, but it turns out it's not so good. I'd like to remove it, seeing as it takes up so much space. I've already tried opening the dictionary folder from my Library, but none of my dictionaries seem to be stored there (not even the pre-installed ones). I don't know whether this is normal; I've never used Mountain Lion or anything prior to Mavericks.

The only files in my dictionary folder are these. 2014-05-17 08.14.54.png

Does anyone have any idea where my dictionaries are stored, since they're not in my Dictionary folder? Thank you so much.

The default dictionaries are stored in /Library/Dictionaries, this is in the main Library, not the user account Library.
