    I would like to add these 3 languages to the Apple Dictionary:
    Spanish
    German
    Portuguese

    How can it be done?

    I'm only able to add those languages for the Wikipedia source.

    Hi!

    You can add dictionaries to Macintosh HD > Library > Dictionaries. However, I have no idea where you could download one.

    I found a mac from a friend with a few other dictionaries installed.
    Problem was, he has leopard installed, and the files arent .dict. They are in fact folders, and no .dict file is inside any of them. french.lproj (for example) are inside, but i cant add any of these to the app.

    Help. :)

    You could call Apple since the computers sold in those countries have the appropriate dictionaries. Or you could try this.

    I ran into this some time ago, though I haven't tried it myself. It's a Dictionary plugin, and it's free. You just prompted me to download it for myself.
