Assignment: Editing of English dictionary

Dictionary for language learning software
This dictionary will be a part of our language learning software. We need some simple dictionary for students of the English language (A1-C1 level), which contain only main meanings of words. The main use will be when students come across the word and send it to their "Favorite Words database"

Five meanings maximum
Dictionary should indicate a main meaning of the English word and it will never contain more than 5 meanings. We wouldn't like to compete with dictionaries, where you type "go" and then you scroll down three pages to see all possible meanings. For the word go, our dictionary should only contain two meanings (in EN-DE version) - go=fahren;gehen.

Please see attached Excel document's columns:

A - ID - ignore it.
B - English word - don't change it.
C - Main translation - this column contains the MOST COMMON translation of English word to your local language. Only one translation is all...
