ColorDict Dictionary from Notes Books & References lets you search a word or common phrase in English in downloadable offline WordNet, and StarDict dictionaries, providing you with a complete dictionary entry, including the options to hear the word with an American o British accent. If you use a popular e-reader app, ColorDict Dictionary can also be with said app so you can find the meanings of unknown words as you read your favorite books. ColorDict Dictionary also lets you download add-ons that can translate words from English to Chinese, Japanese, German, or Spanish.
ColorDict is an encyclopedic dictionary that will take anything you write in any language, and translate it. This is thanks to a permanent connection that the app maintains with Wikipedia, Wordnet, and StarDict. Between the three, there’s no term that can’t be defined.
Owing to the nature of the program, the best way to use it is with a permanent Internet connection, although you can also choose to link local dictionaries that you have downloaded to your device for offline use.
When looking up a word or phrase, you’ll have a couple different options at your disposal. You can, for example, share the results on a social network, or jump from one result to another.
Another feature that may seem a little silly – but is actually quite useful – is that the app allows you to scroll through a page with the help of your volume control buttons. This really does make it easier to look through long pages.
ColorDict is an excellent translation tool that may not be much help for someone that needs an instantaneous translation, but will be of great assistance to any user who frequently works with various languages and needs some extra help.
ColorDict Dictionary provides a complete list of English words and common phrases and offers a simple, tap-to-select interface. The auto-completion feature lets you find new words you might not have been looking for. Best of all, it’s absolutely free.
