You’ll love your Longman Dictionary even more!
An ideal solution for a software which is unpleasant to use
That’s where the LDOCE5 Viewer comes in handy— a fast, user-friendly alternative that will make you “want” to look up words! If you are like me and the horribly-designed Longman dictionary software drives you crazy, follow these steps now:
1. Install the Longman Dictionary software
To start with, make sure the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English (5th Edition) is already installed on your computer – you’ll need its database.
2. Download and install the LDOCE5 Viewer
The app is free and available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Go to its creator’s website to download it now.
3. Set up the application
As you see in the images below (Windows version), setting up the LDOCE5 Viewer is more than easy. The process can take some time (3-10 minutes) of course, but it is definitely worth the wait!
Run the downloaded software: ldoce5viewer-setup
Choose a destination for installing the software on your computer.
Click Finish to launch the software for the first time.
The is what the process looks like. Don’t panic! Keep waiting….
Now the index is successfully created and your new software has full access to all the definitions and multimedia files of your Longman Dictionary.
Congratulations! You now have built your own Longman dictionary which is even better than the original Longman dictionary! From now on, open “LDOCE5 Viewer” to look up words instead of the Longman dictionary you have installed on your computer.
