Tstream Editor Studio http://tstream.xplanation.com/portal/ - should work too. It is quite specific, though.

MS Windows Dictionary Applications May 14, 2007

KTranslator is very much a Linux only application the k prefix indicating it belongs with the KDE desktop which is essentially the "windowing" desktop on Linux (though it also works on Gnome – haven't tried it on XFCE or any of the others).

Dictionary applications that can be used on Windows (besides Babylon, of course) include the Simple Dictionary Application, JaLingo, Sdictionary and StarDict. The latter has a "mouse over" function, I read.

[There is also the Elcombri tool: Elcombri which you can link to from the dict.cc download page. The dict.cc German/English dictionary is the largest German/English offline dictionary I have. Since it is just a text file, I think Elcombri may well work with any other plain text dictionary.]

LingoPad May 22, 2007

Came across this - looks like it may be another alternative for KTranslator on Windows.

LingoPad - Babylon dictionaries May 25, 2007

The LingoPad web page says:

import of own dictionaries possible (Unicode ready)


which will probably mean it can import dictionaries created in CSV form.

To get Babylon .bgl dictionaries in this form one needs dictconv. Dictconv is, as far as I can see, a pure C (or C++ ?) program. The instructions with it only explain about compiling it on Unix/Linux so I don't how easily one could get it to work on Windows, whether it can be compiled on Cygwin.

Trying out StarDict with Baylon and other dictionaries I've found there is a problem when the headword, the word you want translated or defined, appears more than once in the dictionary. When this is the case, StarDict will not find words inputting from "mouse over". Since the interface of LingoPad and StraDict are somewhat similar, I wonder whether they both won't have this same problem.
