Desktop Dictionary

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

CleverKeys 2.1 is a program ordered by Dictionary .com

It can pass any word from any desktop to any online URL that gets a word as argument

I have configured it to ring abadis and wikipedia in the menu

http://dictionary-com-cleverkeys.software.informer.com/download/

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
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Dictionary.net is the most powerful in terms of hot key superiority
But the free version only works with google translator
——————————————————————
lingoes is a very powerful dictionary for English to English OUTSIDE BROWSERS
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:
