translateDict™ 4



Lingenio’s translateDict™ 4 is the successor to the successful office wörterbuch series.

Unlike previous dictionaries for the PC, translateDict™ 4 enables you to enter entire phrases and sentences in the search field. FlexiFind® finds the most important word and any entered words that go with it in a meaningful expression and gives you their translations in that context.

Full support for creating and editing new user dictionaries plus easy import of existing user dictionaries make translateDict™ 4 a thoroughly flexible dictionary. Lookup from all Windows applications via mouse click or hotkeys, ease of use, and customization are all there for your comfort in translateDict™ 4.

FlexiFind® — The Intelligent Search Function

The new function FlexiFind® analyzes the expression entered in the dictionary search field. The function recognizes the most important word in the expression and finds the most appropriate translation. At the same time, it displays translations for accompanying words that are specific for the search context. So at a glance you get all the information you need for the best translation of the entire expression.


Based on the prizewinning Lingenio IntelliDict® technology, translateDict™ 4 offers you context-aware translation from any Windows application. The intelligent dictionary analyzes the context of the search term in the application and then displays the translation that best matches that context.

Direct Lookup from all Windows Applications

Simple and direct lookup from all Windows applications via mouse click or hotkey further increases user comfort and greatly speeds your way to the right results.

Automatic Language Recognition

As you enter a search expression, the system automatically recognizes the language of the expression and sets the search direction accordingly.

Extended Read-Aloud Function1

The extended read-aloud function uses speech synthesis to let you hear the pronunciation of any dictionary entries, not only in the source language but also in the target language.  

Create and Edit User Dictionaries

translateDict™ 4 enables you to create and edit your own user dictionaries in order to extend the vocabulary of your system. You can use these dictionaries freely for translation.

Create and Edit Your Own Dictionary Entries

If a certain word or word usage or a particular word translation is not listed in the translateDict™ 4 system dictionary, you can create your own entry. You can also correct or extend your entries at any time. In this way you can individually customize the lookup behavior of your dictionary.
