Dictionary is a free program to look up the definition of English words as well as translate them into various languages.

Currently, this free offline dictionary will translate English words into German, Dutch, French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish.

Although you can view and use numerous online dictionaries, thesauruses, and online translation tools, having an offline dictionary is a handy tool to keep in your software library.

Using Dictionary

The setup program offers an installer version as well as portable version within the same installation file. Choosing the portable version is handy if you want to take it with you on a USB stick or portable hard drive. Or, if you do not want the program to write to the Windows Registry, the portable version is also an excellent choice.

Once you launch the program, it displays a simple to use GUI that does not include menus or any other unnecessary features. Its minimalist interface displays a "search box" and translation icons at the top of the window which is all that's needed.

Finding the definition of a word using Dictionary is extremely fast and easy. As you type a word in the search box, it shows matching words and their definitions in real-time. No need to type the full word and hit enter or search. This feature also helps if you are not sure how to correctly spell the word in which you are searching.

Once you find the word and its definition, you can translate the word merely by clicking the appropriate language icon at the top of the user interface.

Additionally, Dictionary will list all words that match the text you type. For example, if you type "ominous," the program will list: ominous, ominously, and ominousness along with their respective definitions. Including this handy feature allows you to correctly learn the meaning of the word in which you searched, along with variations of the same word.

Conclusion

Overall, Dictionary is a quick, simple, and straight-forward English definition and translation tool without all the unnecessary bells and whistles.

Software Product Description

Learn the meaning and English words and translate them to other languages.

USER REVIEWS

" Very useful and does not require Internet connection..."

Reviewer: -Dr. Nemo

Review Date: 2011-10-08

Pros: No snags, no spyware and it is fast and very kind with the system.

Cons: Myopes will have problems because there is no means of changing the font size.

Other Thoughts: Something that I like about the installation of Dictionary 2.1 is that it leaves me to choose if whether or not I wish all or some of the dictionaries. I think it is an invaluable tool that students in foreign languages ​​should have in their computer. Besides offering simultaneous translations of the words to six other languages​​, it also provides the basic meaning of English words.

Have fun!
