Offline dictionary/translator

Can someone suggest me a decent offline dictionary and/or translator for Spanish?

I use SpanishDict for a dictionary and I use Google translator, but I wanna have applications in case my connection flips and because it's faster.
I've also got Oxford Spanish Dictionary but it's not really handy.

I have been told that Maria Moliner is as good a dictionary as there is but
I have never looked at it. This is not a Spanish/English dictionary, so definitions will be in Spanish. RAE is terrific. It is available online for free, and can be accessed through Tomisimo. It is also voluminous and expensive. I have used Harper Collins' Spanish English dictionary and have been very satisfied with it.

Es difícil para encontrar un diccionario que no necesita a acceder una conexión de la Red. Sé que hay unos para el Iphone. Creo que "Babylon" hace un diccionario gratis así.

I know about a translate software for translate onto Spanish and English in both cases.
The software name is Translator 7.
Here in the companies is a bunch off that software between the engineers and managers of the foreigns companies and foreigner people.

Oh yeah, Babylon. I remember installing it and trying it a long time ago but I didn't like it back then.
I used it again today and it seems marvelous for both a translator and a dictionary!
I might as well throw the current Greek-English dictionary I use to trash.

Gracias a todos por su ayuda!

Yes I have heard before about the babylon software too.
I have used that translated in the office and really is it wonderful.

I just realised it can only be used online.
Nonetheless, it's useful and more handy than visiting websites to do the job.
