gnome ding is a translator and spellchecker for Gtk2/Gnome2. This program is intended by "ding" (http://www-user.tu-chemnitz.de/~fri/ding/). Also this program is intended by xsteak (and his spelling limits) and by g2ding (by Oliver Grawert http://www.grawert.net/software/).
The main intentions of gnome-ding are to provide a offline spellchecker, based on aspell-dictionarys and a tool for translation (de-en) and a thesaurus (de).
gnome-ding is programming in C for Gnome2. It use aspell over the C-api. The thesaurus and the translation-dictionary is use by egrep.
With gnome-ding shiped a de-en-dicionary,original by ding. It's only extend a little...
The application is license under GNU General Public License v2 as well as the database files (*.ding).
I have no plan for new releases or updates.
