The best way to learn a foreign language is to read, watch and listen to as many sources in this language as possible. And since we spend so much time online browsing foreign sites, the web is a great place for language studies. When it comes to learning new words, however, you can’t do much without a good dictionary, and that’s what Pop-Up Dictionary will help you with!
Pop-Up Dictionary is a compact, fast and extremely convenient multi-language dictionary for those who need instant translation from virtually any language. Once the program is installed, all you need to translate a foreign word is to select it in your browser and use the Ctrl+Ins+Ins shortcut. The program will automatically detect the source language and show its translation a moment later. Pressing the Ins key again will add the word to your personal word list that you can open at any time to go over the words that you want to learn. Once you are done reading, you can launch a slideshow with the words you added to the list or start a quiz to check how well you learned them. The additional functionality of the program makes it more than just a dictionary, but also a convenient language study tool. Pop-Up Dictionary offers the user remarkable flexibility in creating and maintaining custom dictionaries, configuring UI settings, adding audio/video links to words on the user’s list and choosing between different methods of learning new word sets.
If you are focused on studying a foreign language, Pop-Up Dictionary will be an invaluable assistant that will save you tons of time and help expand your vocabulary quickly and efficiently!
