Where to find a dictionary to convert

Is there anyone advising me where I can download dictionaries English-Italian and Spanish-Italian in ASCII format? I mean I need a dictionary to import as glossary into a CAT tool so I have to get a dictionary in a format to be converted in order to load as glossary for Omega T (the CAT tool I work with). Where can I find it?
Thanks!

Fabry

To use a dictionary in OmegaT, it's more convenient to use a Stardict dictionary.
There is at least one English to Italian dictionary here:

Problem downloading individual dictionary Dec 5, 2010

I have used your link- thank you very much for it yet I can't seem to download any individual dictionaries - it only takes me to this page -> http://sourceforge.net/projects/stardict/files/ which I understand is to download the Stardict program itself (which I already have). I have tried right click 'Save as' but this does not work. Any pointers? I have also tried the other links for stardict files in the yahoo group and they all seem to lead to the same page.

I have managed to download some from torrent sites but they have so far been incompatible as I noted your point about the sametypesequence= g or m only format in another post.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Steve

It seems some sametypesequence=x can be used Dec 6, 2010

Unfortunately, most links to GPL StarDict dictionaries seem to be down.

It seems that at least some sametypesequence=x dictionaries can be used.
On the XDXF Dictionaries Download site, select a source and a target language, and select StarDict for the format.

The two English to Spanish dictionaries I downloaded had sametypesequence=x. By simply changing the "x" to "g" in the .ifo file (e.g., with Notepad), I was able to use them.

Thanks a lot! Dec 9, 2010

Thank you very much, Didier! I didn't expect to be able to solve it in such a simple way! Great - all my previously dud dictionaries are now working fine!
Thanks again!

Regards,

Steve

PS Are there any particular favourites you would recommend or is it a case of take what you can find that works?
