Take command of your language with Ultimate Dictionary

Take command of your (supported) language with this definitive lexicon tool for Windows.

I’ve been a writer nearly all my life. I’ve been a professional writer for about 18 years. I also hold degrees in English and Writing from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX.  I’ve got the language bug, and thankfully, I get paid for what I produce.  One of the things that someone in my position simply MUST have is a good dictionary.  This is one of the reasons why Ultimate Dictionary is part of my tool box.  It’s a dictionary for your Windows PC, and its really cool.

The ultimate dictionary is a complete set of 33 English, Spanish, French and Polish dictionaries, thesauruses and glossaries. It is easy to use and is all-inclusive. The ultimate dictionary looks up words in all of its included dictionaries at once, so you can browse a list of results all at once. Once you’ve looked up your word, you can quickly jump from one dictionary, glossary even to another translation if necessary.  You can compare definitions between dictionaries and glossaries at your leisure.

Ultimate Dictionary is a decent application, but its interface is very outdated. The app hasn’t been updated since January 2009, and while it’s a great app, its so very Windows 7.  While that isn’t necessarily, a bad thing – more and more users are moving off Windows XP – and are finally embracing Windows 7 comfortably.  However, without an update in over five years, its hard to know how long it will continue to work, if at all, with newer versions of Windows. Its too bad, because its pronunciation tools are a huge help if you’re trying to learn a new language.

Translate text between more than 50 languages with ease

Who likes to move between windows and copy and paste text back and forth when it comes to translate a text? That’s what happens when you’re using online translators. Instead, I suggest you to try Google Translate Client, which is free and enables the fast translation of text in the most applications, such as Web Browsers, Office apps, Messengers and etc. using the Google Translate service.

Google Translate Client is a free download for Windows, which integrates Google’s language translation features with other programs (MS Word, Outlook, Internet Explorer and other browsers, etc.). The idea is to effortlessly bring the functions of online translators into the familiar functionality of popular applications.

While online translators, including Google’s own, are useful tools, they can be time consuming, as you move between windows and copy and paste text back and forth. Google Translate Client is far simpler – just highlight the desired text in a web page, word document or email and a pop-up ‘G’ icon will offer a translation of the text. Simply select this to see your required translation appear below the original.

The client can be enabled or disabled for a range of applications, meaning that you can customise your use of the tool. If for any reason you don’t want it to run with Firefox, for example, you can turn it off, while still allowing it to run in your other chosen software programs.

Google Translate Client is available in Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 and takes up minimal system memory to run alongside your favourite applications. It also supports free XDXF dictionaries, as used by Atlantida, WiseDict and mDictionary, among others. Wikipedia articles are also supported.
