The Open Dictionary Project (ODict for short), is an open-source alternative to proprietary dictionary file formats such as Babylon and Apple Dictionaries. Similar to Apple dictionaries, Open Dictionary files are converted from XML (currently in a draft specification described below) to compressed, serialized, bite-sized files. ODict is built on some of the fastest technologies to ensure maximum speed when performing lookups: Google Snappy (fastest compression), RapidXML (fastest XML parsing), and Flatbuffers (fastest serialization). Entries are searched in log(n) time, un-coincidentally the time complexity of an ordered map lookup.


  1. The ODXML Markup
  2. File Format Specification
  3. Using the CLI
  4. Building ODict
