Hi folks,
I've spent the better part of an hour looking online for a way to add Wiktionary to the dictionary.app in OS X.

I found info showing me how to install dictionaries from the stardict format (here http://davidtse916.wordpress.com/2008/01/24/adding-dictionaries-to-the-built-in- dictionary-application-in-leopard/ for instance)

But is there a way to add a new online dictionary? Wikipedia is supported, so surely Wiktionary could be supported too, or not?

Is there a location where the config data for the Wikipedia connection is stored? Perhaps I could replicate and modify that to work with Wiktionary?

Any helpful suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

With thanks,

Jonathan
