OS X adding extra dictionaries

OS X has a three-finger feature that translates or explains (depending on the dictionary) any word in any text. It has english dictionary by default plus wikipedia.

Bulgarian dictionary:

  1.  http://mac.tashev.info/.

German-English:

  1. 20mb http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/10376/english-german-dictionary. This is far too insufficient.
  2. dict.cc integrated 600mb http://lipflip.org/articles/dictcc-dictionary-plugin. This has a lot more words. Also "lookup online" feature that goes to dict.cc.

Dictionaries are installed either in /Library/Dictionaries or in /Users/<UserName>/Library/Dictionaries.
