Is it somehow possible to add a English/German German/English translation? Maybe by using local dictionary from ding? Or online dict.cc or wordreference.com or leo.org?

Hullo,

Great to see a plasmoid dictionary — just what I'm looking for :D

The only issue is that the API keys for M-W is missing. Is this a bug, and if not, how do I fix it myself?

... I found the answer on your GitHub Wiki.

Still odd that you need to apply for a *developer* API key to be able to use it.

Hello there.

Thanks for your downloading first. The thing is Merriam-Webster limited the usage of free api key not exceeding 1000 queries per day. I'm afraid the limitation is too "tight" so I just remove the default key.

Considering this plasmoid isn't very popular. I'll let you use M-W out-of-box in next minor version. aka 0.7.2

That's great, thanks :)

I just applied for a key anyway, so from my side it's not a biggie, but until it gets over 1000 users, it might be nice to have the key included.

You're right. :-)

I'll apply for a commercial API key for the sake of convenience if M-W could just let me insert a little piece of text ads instead of charging me fees.
