The one I use is Artha, which is an offline one.  IT is not a spell checking dictionary, but, it is 
a dictionary and has many thesaurus types of information.

I prefer offline ones since laptop users may not have Internet access when they need to use a 
thesaurus or find what the word actually means.

There are binaries for Windows and Linux.  Many distros of Linux have Artha in their repositories.

Once it is loaded, it stays loaded until you reboot.  You reopen it with Ctrl Alt W or whatever 
keyboard shortcut you define other than the default.

I have not installed it in a long while, so I do not remember if it used your system's default 
language or if you can choose the language[s] you want to use.


I have been using Artha for a long time. I don't have to reload it--I have put the icon on the 
panel, and it is ready to use
as soon as you boot your computer up. I have stumped it occasionally, but not often. I have it 
installed on PCLinuxOS and on Windows,
both 7 and 8.1. It can sometimes guess at your meaning even when you have misspelled the input, 
which is something the spell checkers
never do.
