Dictionary .NET isn't your run of the mill dictionary. It's one of the most useful dictionary programs available today. This program is perfect for students, writers, bloggers, or people that just want to improve their vocabulary. More often than not, I'll discover a new word reading some random bit of material, and I'll scour the internet for a simple definition, in most cases, that usually takes me about five minutes. Using Dictionary .NET, I can define any word I discover in less than a second. No more long drawn out searches online, and no more digging through multiple sources. Dictionary .NET gives you an up to date definition without the hassles.
Dictionary .NET's benefits don't end there. The program supports multiple languages as well. Now and then, I'll come across written content in a language that I don't understand. I'll enter those words into Dictionary .NET and get the translation instantly. I want to point out that this program is not meant to be a translator, but it does a fairly good job of it. I was even surprised to find that I can easily translate back and forth between any language I can think of. This utility is probably better suited for those that are studying a new language. I think it makes the learning process much easier.
Define any word at the push of a button!
The program isn't very big. In fact, it's only 514KB in size and installs in less than a second. One of the most noticeable issues I've seen with the program is that it's not that intuitive. My first time using the program, I had to fiddle around with the options to figure out all the features the program had. The translation button was well hidden, but there are options to display the features permanently. I can't really put too much fault in that since the program automatically detects a different language when it is entered into the program. Overall the program has been a massive help in my writing and publishing. My content has a rich vocabulary and even has support for multiple languages, thanks to Dictionary .NET. I think this is a must-have program for anyone that does any type of heavy reading, writing, or translating.
