Colordict supports the StarDict format, which is very similar to the Babylon format. In fact, StarDict editor can read .bgl
Babylon dictionaries and convert them to the StarDict input format.
Both Babylon and StarDict support inflections
. I.e. they'll find "go" when you look up "went" and "mouse" if you look up "mice."
However, this only works if the dictionary author actually defined these inflections (most free StarDict dictionaries don't contain them, but most Babylon .bgl files do).
To test whether a StarDict/Babylon dictionary contains inflections, decompile it with the free StarDict
editor, which comes with StarDict, and open the source file in a text editor.
If you see a pipe symbol |
followed by variants of the same entry, the dictionary contains inflections. Otherwise it'll only find the headword.
