There’s a high chance you find what you need over the web, but there’s also the chance the bit of info is in a different language. Just to save some time in looking up definitions over the web, GoldenDict comes as an application which can deliver thorough and accurate translations through a neat desktop interface.
Set up offline and offline dictionaries
With little time spent in the setup process you quickly get to take the application for a spin. The set of features is found in quite an intuitive interface. Most of the space is the browse area, with several side panels to quickly access dictionaries, favorites, and history. The upper toolbar holds the majority of functions you need.
One of the first things which need to be done is the configuration of dictionaries. This is done in a dedicated window, and can take a bit of time and effort. On the bright side of things, the application supports an impressive variety of translation sources, such as offline dictionary files, sound directories, third-party programs, but also websites.
Tab navigation, easy search, and text-to-speech
Once you manage your dictionaries and include them in groups, translation is minimized to a double-click operation. The interface supports tabs so you can thoroughly look up the definitions of multiple terms and on different sources.
Initiating a search for a term of interest is done through the search field, where it’s also possible to choose the dictionary group. The result is interactive, and you can even navigate through pages if result comes from the Internet. More than this, the application can translate clipboard text through hotkey commands and is even fitted with text-to-speech functionality.
A few last words
All things considered, we can state that GoldenDict is a powerful translation tool overall. It can be fitted with a variety of offline and online sources for accurate results. Tab support makes navigation comfortable, with built-in text-to-speech, and instant translation box.
