The archives are free StarDict conversions of the English Wiktionary main (most important) entry information. At least presently mostly the definition part is included, not e.g. etymologies, phonetics etc.

StarDict format is compatible with various computer and phone programs. For Android phones you can use e.g. ColorDict (for Android). For it you need to unarchive the 7-Zip archive (I recommend ZArchiver for Android) and copy/move the contents to your dictdata folder.

The English Wiktionary, all languages version of the archive includes English entries for foreign languages, not just the English language. That is, both English and foreign words are explained in English.

Experimental quick Wikipedia and Wiktionary conversions

Files stardict-wikipedia-* (mostly untested archives). N.b. as some files are very large (hundres of megabytes), I had to remove most of them for now. Please ask if you need a particular Wikipedia or Wiktionary archive converted.

These are suitable for use in Stardict GUI in PC. The content of each entry has been copied as-is, without any parsing.

The conversion was done by an experimental version of wikipedia.cpp from stardict-3. Currently in repo https://code.google.com/r/korhonenjoel-wikipedia/

The largest dumps can't currently be converted or at least not used in Stardict GUI due to large file issues (indexing is 32b etc.): commonswiki, cswiki, dewiki, enwiki, eswiki, frwiki, itwiki, jawiki, nlwiki, plwiki, ptwiki, svwiki, ukwiki, wikidatawiki, zhwiki
