Use on-line and off-line dictionaries to define and translate words, with GoldenDict
GoldenDict is a free tool for checking word definitions using dictionaries available on-line and also downloadable. What’s the use of such a tool when you can find on the web all the definitions you want? Perhaps not much, unless you prefer a more organized way that can save you time.
A nice feature is that you can decide what dictionaries to include for your searches, even using query templates to add the searching of custom web sites containing information related with your needs.
The interface is simple, organized with tabs. Text you copy can also be translated in case your results come from dictionaries written in languages you can’t understand.
If you are a frequent user of dictionaries, GoldenDict is a free program you may like to try and see if it makes your work easier.
