TRANSLATED TEXT: Thesaurus
MEANING: Same as original text
EXPLANATION: The Greek word "Thesaurus" means "treasure". (Greek: θησαυρός, pronounced as "thee-sav-ros, accent goes to "ros", and the "thee" syllable sounds like the "th" in "theme".) I'm not translating this word, because it has become something like a "brand name" of elaborate dictionaries. If you want, however, you can copy the respective Greek word, which is: "θησαυρός", as I said before.

[Αυτά τά δεδομένα είναι κοινά - χρησιμοποιούνται από πολλά λεξικά. Όταν κατεβάζετε πολλά λεξικά, τά "κοινά" δεδομένα δεν χρειάζεται νά τα κατεβάσετε πάλι.]
MEANING: Same as original text
EXPLANATION: I understand that the comment you have in brackets, is just an explanation for me, but since it is a very informative one, I thought that maybe you would like to place it on some help page. It reads: "These data are common - they are being used by multiple dictionaries. When you download many dictionaries, you don't need to download them again." (As elsewhere, it was not very accurate, to translate it word by word.)





















ORIGINAL TEXT: Copy text
