Dictionary is part of the translation extensions that provides words translations.
When a single word is submitted for translation, the Translator switches to the Dictionary and displays alternative translations along with the part of speech and voice. In addition to the translations, each dictionary entry displays a set of reverse translations into the original language, if available. To see dictionary's translations, Dictionary must be enabled in ImTranslator Options.
Dictionary is available in ImTranslator application, Pop-up Bubble Translator, and Inline Translator.
During the dictionary's translation, ImTranslator automatically switches to the first provider that supports a dictionary. If the dictionary doesn't have a searched word, a regular translation will be displayed. The same regular translation appears if a provider doesn't support a dictionary.
The Dictionary covers almost all English language combinations and some mixed language pairs.
The Dictionary continues to expand with new language combinations.
Dictionary mode vs. Translator mode
You can switch between Dictionary and Translator mode by choosing the Translator tab. The searched word will be transferred to the Translator and will display the regular translation of the translation provider used in the Dictionary.
If you switch from the Translator mode to the Dictionary mode using the Dictionary tab, the text from the Translator will be transferred to the Dictionary and shortened to 75 characters.
In the Dictionary mode you can use the Enter key instead of using the Translate button.
