How to add sources to this dictionary seems simple enough but what is to be written there? It is only in English and I would like to have other dictionaries - see my related question

enter image description here

  • Are you only wondering about what to use in the highlighted “Description” field or do you ask what all fields in the depicted form should contain? Do you have a dictionary server to which you would like to connect or (since you are referring to the other question) would you like to know how to use locally installed dictionaries?
