[sword-devel] Russian text

I've found several texts in Russian which seemingly claim to be free (Ancient
Greek->Russian, Hebrew<->Russian, and less interesting Bible dictionaries and
something I don't remember).
These are in format of the program Lingvo (www.lingvo.ru) for Windows, which
is Russian<->[whatever] dictionary. There are also the modules (search for
"user dictionaries" in Russian, if you know Russian).
I looked in the file format. It seems to be compressed by a proprietary
(seemingly simple) compression algorithm. If I will find time I can try to
decipher the file format (it is lawful in Russia in my situation).
I don't have Lingvo. Somebody having it may try to convert the dictionaries to
an other file format by he program. (However most probably it does not support
saving dictionaries.) I can guide such the man to the URL in this Russian
language site. The Lingvo program itself probably has both Russian and English
UI, I'm not sure.
I contacted the author (also Russian) of the dictionaries asking among other
about permissions and about files in an other format, but no reply.
