To use dictionaries created in earlier versions of ABBYY Lingvo, you must first convert them into the new format. The conversion will start automatically when you place an old-format dictionary onto the Bookshelf.
Important! User dictionaries created in ABBYY Lingvo 10 cannot be used in ABBYY Lingvo 9.0 or earlier.
If you wish to use a DSL dictionary created in ABBYY Lingvo 7.0 or earlier whose target language is not English or Russian, do the following:
1. Open the text file of the DSL dictionary;
3. Re-compile the DSL dictionary;
4. Place the re-compiler dictionary on the ABBYY Lingvo Bookshelf.
