UniDict - the Ultimate Multilingual Dictionary Search Engine.


About UniDict

UniDict has been designed to be an extensible, multi-purpose, multilingual dictionary search engine. It can create search index files for dictionaries in a number of formats plus supports plug-ins for new formats and external searches. Although based in Japanese support, UniDict does not end there. You will be able to customize UniDict to your needs and it will grow with you. UniDict supports the EDICT format so you will be able to download the latest versions of on-line dictionaries and keep your dictionary collection up to date.

Language is the most fluid aspect of culture. It is a moving target that requires constant maintenance and updating. The EDICT format that UniDict is built on is supported by an army of linguists keeping the dictionaries current and extending features. UniDict will, through its plug-ins and network support, become the central point for all your lookup needs. UniDict comes with a built-in text editor and a glossary builder for you to built your own dictionaries. It supports AppleEvents for remote searches as well as running as a dictionary server. UniDict also support features such as "Drag and Drop", OS8's "ContextualMenu" for running searches up from other applications and Text-to-Speech for reading text aloud. With UniDict's unique "Kanji Constructor", you can look up the meaning of kanji which you do not know the reading of.
