A while back someone posted nice application that was doing the following: If there is any word on the screen highlighted and then this "W" icon clicked afterwards, the word in question appeared with his definition. This "W" icon was sitting next to the clock at the right hand bottom.
Due to my computer crash I had to reinstall everything and I lost this wonderful "W". Can someone help me to locate it for download. I remember that I got it fro ProZ from somebody.
Thank you

Gabriel

I can also recommend CleverKeys Dec 8, 2007

If you highlight a word in any application and press the shortcut keys (Ctrl + L is default, but you can change it), you are taken to explanation page either in Dictionary.com or Thesaurus.com- by your choice.

ABBYY Lingvo can do that as well Dec 9, 2007

You can set up automatic pop-up translation of a word you point to in any application.
