KDing is a KDE port of Ding (http://www-user.tu-chemnitz.de/~fri/ding/), a dictionary lookup program. It is a simple program sitting in KDE's system tray that can translate the current clipboard content. The user can also enter a single word or a phrase for translation.
KDing is intended to translate between German and English, but it can be used for every language for which a word list is available for Ding.



  • case-insensitive search and matching whole words only is now configurable

  • in addition to egrep, KDing now supports agrep for searching

  • approximate matching is supported when using agrep

  • 0.5.2

  • the result page now uses the font and alternating background colors from the current color scheme

  • added ability to cancel a running search

  • 0.5.1

  • added options how to position the window and how to handle clicks on the system tray icon

  • fixed sorting algorithm to match the sort order of Ding again

  • the result display now honors KDE's global font settings

  • in case KDing's window is already shown, it is now raised when it is activated by a keyboard shortcut

  • 0.5
  • ported to KDE4

  • LicenseGPL

     Font color not honoured

     by bitcrazy on: Aug 9 2009

    I've black window background and white default text color, but kding's result window uses black font color. So the results are only readable, if marked.

    Thanks for pointing this out, I will fix it with the next release. For now, you can set a fixed text color in the style sheet "kding.css".

     crash on exit

    After updating to KDE 4.3.2 (Debian Sid) kding always crashes when I log out of KDE/exit the application. I tried with kding 0.5.1 and 0.6.

    When I start kding from konsole I get the following after the crash:

    KCrash: Application 'kding' crashing...

    The graphical crash tool shows:
    Application: KDing (kding), signal: Segmentation fault

    Any idea?

    Just FYI: With the update to KDE 4.3.4 kding doesn't crash anymore on exit.

    thanks for this great tool.

    It would be nice, if there would be an option, to watch the clipboard automatically, and translate new clipboard-content automatically, and then show it (reasonable count of results) in a tooltip right at mouse-position!

    For longer texts, pressing a complicated shortcut and focussing and defocussing the kding window is too intrusive.

     Tooltip look

    Just a minor thing but when will kding get such a nice big KDE4 tooltip? It's the only application in my panel/tray which has that old-style opaque one line tooltip.

    How do you like Plasma 5?
     The best KDE Desktop ever.
     Definitely a nice improvement.
     Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
     I do not like some of the changes.
     KDE is taking the wrong way.
     I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
     I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
