This page is will be updated to include new resources. If you have any, please inform us on the Matrix chatroom, link on the sidebar.

Support for local dictionaries such as StarDict, Migaku, and JSON has been added to ssmtool in version 0.3. This means you can use them for offline use, or if Wiktionary do not have good coverage for your language.

Support for local frequency lists have been added in version 0.5. This information is displayed on the LCD counter widget on the window which should help you decide whether to add a card (you might want to prioritize adding a note with a word at frequency rank 5000, rather than another one at 40000).

Simple JSONs

English Wiktionary for Russian words, ~400k entries

https://freelanguagetools.org/wikt-kaikki-ru.json

This file is produced from Kaikki’s Wiktionary dumps. It should produce results very similar to using the default Wiktionary (English) option without using the internet. I may create similar files for other languages at a later date and/or if there is a demand for it. If you need a such a file, message me on the chatroom linked on the sidebar.

Frequency lists

Lemmatized frequency list for Russian based on Ruscorpora

https://freelanguagetools.org/freq_ru.json

This file is produced from Russian frequency dictionary which in turn comes from the Russian National Corpus. This file is lemmatized, which means you should turn on the “Lemmatize before looking up frequency” option in the configuration tool.

Lemmatized frequency list for English based on COCA corpus

https://freelanguagetools.org/freq_en.json

Remember to use the “Lemmatize before looking up” option for this list.

Migaku’s frequency lists

https://mega.nz/folder/eyYwyIgY#3q4XQ3BhdvkFg9KsPe5avw/folder/bz4ywa5A

These lists are not lemmatized. I recommend not using them for highly inflected languages, as the results may be inaccurate or many words may not be on the list due to the language have more than 100,000 word-forms in common use. Do not use the “Lemmatize before looking up frequency” option if you decide to use one of these lists.

Other formats

These will not work with ssmtool, but you can use them in other programs, such as GoldenDict, a powerful dictionary app. Support for them may be added in the future in ssmtool.

BGL (Babylon)

Google drive folder, a lot of dictionaries, but mostly only for English, some of them technical. Google drive

DSL (Lingvo)
