Don't you think the entry needs to be cleaned up a little? I'm thinking of categories, bold typeface and hyperlinks.

And yet, QTranslate v6.3.1.zip portable downloads without a hitch.

That'll teach you even thinking about using an installer...;-)

I never ever thought of using the installer, I was just testing the download link- the problem with the installer download doesn't appear for the first time. However both primary download links (installer & archive) work fine now.
Thanks to the developer for maintaining and improving the program and for not ruining the interface (so far) like many other freeware developers did recently.

Just teasing, of course...;-)

I obtained Lingoes dictionaries by looking up an older version, such as "Lingoes Translator 2.8.1 + Dictionaries". I used
http://uploading.com/files/thankyou/ca64ece4/Lingoes.Translator.and.Dictionaries.part1.rar & http://uploading.com/files/thankyou/92e1656f/Lingoes.Translator.and.Dictionaries.part2.rar . I used 7-zip to unzip the files (unzip "part1" and you will unzip the whole file). The dictionaries are found in the folder "dictionaries". A list is found at http://download-pedia.com/?a=f&b=OgRWJSMhCGcRWjkWCgJZUAcoSyolXA!! , although the links did not seem to work. Also, if you try to download the ".ld2" files from the Lingoes website, I did get a download window sometimes from "Download from Dbank" if I left clicked all over the first screen that came up about 100 times. Every now and then you will get a series of downloads from "Download from SkyDrive", but only on certain dictionary downloads.

The latest version of Lingoes is 2.9.2- http://www.lingoes.net/en/translator/download.htm
However I would like to ask- is there a way to block the annoying ads? I would rather stop using Lingoes than tolerating the obtrusive ads Lingoes spews out at every search.
