Opens the translation in a browser window (if it doesn’t work from some programs copy to clipboard first)
Zdic is simple EnFa translates the world you put in the clipboard and with intelligence when you type in it

which has a portable version too
Competing with other hot key programs WITHIN BROWSERS
outside it is fine for example with SHift+right click or middle click or double click
It is weak competing for hot hey and its popup is slow but the world you shift+right click on doesn’t have to be selected first
but then you can get translation in any application.
To add persian dictionaries:
