I'm looking for some software that will make going to the dictionary less of a chore. I found kanjipop. Has anyone used it? If so, what did you think?

Is there any other software that might do something similar, i.e. allow me to look words up straight from a word doc? I wish there was a way to access ALC or EDICT straight in this fashion... Anyone out there have some programming expertise? I think I hear opportunity knocking

Best,
Ben

thanks Aug 10, 2006

Thanks for the reply.

Kenkyusha is fine, but I really want is something that will let me check definitions from the document, so I don't have to switch back and forth all of the time. It would speed things up immensely.

I just downloaded kanjipop, and it's alright. Not great, but helpful when I just want to confirm what I already know For anyone who's curious, there's a demo version here:

KanjiKit.net @ PSP Inc.

I don't know if I'll pay for it yet. It does let you build your own glossary, which in conjunction with my CAT could be helpful.

Thanks again.

Ben

I use EBPocket. It's a pocket PC version of EBWin.

They are free. You can add many electronic dictionaries, including EDICT!

Thanks for the replies.

I couldn't get EB Pocket to work, and Robodict is pretty expensive

I did find another neat tool for those of you who use firefox, though:

it translates words on the fly from japanese to english or vice-versa. Pretty cool.
