So today we announce a new Partnership with dict.cc. For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s an online dictionary that has been around for quite a while, in fact, I think it may be one of the first. Started officially in 2002, it focuses mainly on German<>English translations, but can be used for a ton of other languages.
They have close to a million translations already and the cool part is, you can submit a word for translation (in any language) and they will have someone check each translation that’s submitted. That means that you can be sure that the translation is correct!
Now, some of you may not think that you need this, but I assure you that the single word translations will give you a better feel of what the word means than Google translate. I like to use both. I’ll select a range of text to be translated and then, when something doesn’t make sense, I’ll highlight the word and click.to dict.cc to see other “meanings” and uses of the word.
I love Google translate and I can also cross reference with Bing translate, but that leaves out a large portion of the “meaning” of the text. Let’s face it, online translation services have come a long way, but they still make mistakes. Now you can check that weird sounding word with a highlight directly from Google translate, Bing translate or an email to find out what exactly they are talking about. If you are still not sure, go to the dict.cc forum and ask the experts. So make yourself understood with a single click.to dict.cc
