I have tried it and it's really easy to use.
Just 2 remarks .
- The edition commands of the menu Edit are not functional (Windows XP)
-  The command Find allows only a search in the "Synonyms" list and not in
the "Meanings". Perhaps a command to extend to the "Meanings" (only my
personal opinion).
I don't know if it could be useful, but there's also another interesting
extension in the languages area : Anaphraseus, which allows to translate
directly in a Writer document, with creation of TM and glossary. Note that
its author has to actualize it for AOO 4.0. But on the AOO 3.4.1, it's
running fine.
Many thanks for your work and a lot of success for your future
