You can install GoldenDict and download the relevant Babylon dictionaries from their web site. You will have to download the .exe file of and use 7Zip to extract the .bgl (dictionary) file from it.
The dictionaries also include the IPA.

I have extracted the before mentioned exe and the .bgl file is nowhere to be seen – zeitue Mar 8 '12 at 18:57
Babylon just made all dictionaries downloadable in BGL format – zeitue Mar 9 '12 at 16:46
