New in IGCS - Dictionaries (http://www.sino.uni-heidelberg.de/igcs/iglang.htm#dictionaries):

在线佛学辞典 (FoDict - Online Buddhist Dictionary)

Ed./Corp.: 中华佛典宝库 Zhonghua fodian baoku; 厦门市南普陀寺 Xiamen shi Nan Putuo si, Xiamen, China.
URL: http://www.fodian.net/zxcd/default.htm
Language: Chinese (GB).

Description: This dictionary is an interesting, yet slow resource which performes a combined search within currently (Dec 2005) 18 sources: 佛学大辞典;佛学常见辞汇;三藏法数([明]一如编);中国佛教(中国佛教协会编);翻译名义集([宋]法云编);佛学次第统编([明]杨卓编);汉英-英汉-英英佛教词汇;巴-英南传佛教辞典;法相辞典;中国大百科全书(摘录);法界次第初门;法门名义集;俗语佛源;五灯会元;佛教器物简述;祖庭事苑;阅藏知津;佛教人物传. By default, only entry-headings are searched and the string has to start with the search term. However, that can be changed in the settings (设置) section, where also each source can be in/excluded. There is even a Sanscrit font availabel for download. Users should note, that fulltext search (全文检索) excludes the entry-headings, and changes in the settings first need to be "saved" (确定).

Content: (1) Search; (2) Search history; 3) Settings; (4) Dictionaries overview; (5) Join us.
