    I'm not sure this is what you want.
    I use the free version.
    Sorry if this is of no help.

    WordWeb: English dictionary, thesaurus, and word finder software.

    Thanks for your prompt reply, I'm afraid I did not make myself clear, I'm just looking for an offline dictionary client, I already have a dictionary database file (it's Spanish dictionary) and would like a recommendation for an open source client to open it. Your wordweb is a complete dictionary, it's not a client and I don't believe it'll open my db file.
