I have been trying to add Wiktionary as one of the sources of Mavericks’s Dictionary.app but I could not. I have been following the instructions in this answer to the question “How to add Wiktionary as a source to the default Dictionary.app?” but the DictUnifier app gets stuck indexing the content. Or at least it takes forever… I left the program running the whole night (more than 10 hours in that situation) and nothing happened.

Does anyone know where I can get a Wiktionary version ready to use in Dictionary.app on Mac?


Apple has changed quite a lot in their new OSX version. And as you see on the DictUnifier-website, the tool only was updated to support Lion in the newest version.

Support Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion"

So Mavericks isn't supported at all, which I think is the root of the problem.

  • Are you telling me that if I was Lion user I would be able to do the transformation? That is pretty sad. – lpuerto Sep 22 '14 at 7:14
  • At least that's what I interpret from the owners website. – Christian Sep 22 '14 at 7:26
  • Well, most of the times if it can run on Lion, it can run on Mavericks... – lpuerto Sep 22 '14 at 12:43
  • Not all the time like you see it here. – Christian Sep 22 '14 at 13:49
