Projects / wordtrans


Wordtrans is a frontend for several dictionaries. It supports some plain text dictionaries such as i2e (English-Spanish) and de-en (German-English), Babylon Translator dictionaries, and dict servers dictionaries. Some features include console and X (Qt) versions, good speed, and the ability to watch the clipboard and automatically translate the word there.
