Function: The Dictionary Services module.
Dictionary Services provides functions that let you access dictionaries programmatically from within your application.

A dictionary is any look-up reference that is built using the Dictionary Development Kit. The contents of a dictionary can serve many purposes. The most typical use is to provide definitions for a single language, but you can create content for a thesaurus, bilingual dictionaries (such as English-Japanese), in-house glossaries, and professional dictionaries (such as legal, medical, and technical).

Available in Mac OS X v10.5 and later.
