Have you ever had trouble translating words or simply do not know what a word means? The amazing app Worldictionary will help you out. All you have to do is point at a word, wait for the app to read the word, and it will give you the translation and definition of it.
An online dictionary and offline dictionary can both be used. I strongly recommend the online dictionary since the options there are much greater. The Bing or Google translation engines can be selected in the Settings section of the app.
Images with words may be uploaded or taken as well. The words or sentences found are identified and translated. When the app cannot read an image, you will be enabled to highlight the word(s). This helps to read the word correctly to give the proper translation.
I find Worldictionary vastly useful for my Spanish. I know how to speak and write in Spanish, and most of the time understand what certain words mean, but there are instances when I come across words that I have no idea what they could possibly mean. Now that I have this app I won’t have trouble anymore going online to find a Spanish dictionary. The app will give me results immediately. It saved me time and now I have even expanded my vocabulary in that language! What used to be my biggest challenge has now become my favorite hobby.
Worldictionary does not work well with handwritten text, only print. If in any situation it is too dark to read a word, a flashlight button can be activated.
The app has a dictionary section as well. Type in any word and a translation and definition is given. An audio button at the bottom will read the text aloud if you prefer that rather than reading it. A Wikipedia section is available in the dictionary too for further reference as well as a YouTube section. Any video with that word will appear. The results may also be shared via email and SMS, or bookmarks.
Worldictionary translates words from the following languages: English, Dutch, Japanese, German, Spanish, Finnish, Korean, Slovak, French, Norwegian, Swedish, Chinese, German, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Portuguese, Danish, Italian, and Romanian.
