Google Launches Online Dictionary

Posted by madhavkobal on 05/12/2009

Search giant Google has launched Google Dictionary — an online dictionary service that offers definitions of words in 28 languages.

“Google Dictionary isn’t in the pull down menu above the main Google search bar, nor is it located on the More Google Products page. It is, however, the fourth result that appears when searching for “dictionary” on Google.com,” according to PCMag.com.

The service features translations between English and 28 other languages, synonyms, related phrases and definitions from other online sources.

Besides English, Google Dictionary contains the major Western European languages, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Korean, Arabic, Hebrew and many more.

Google has also added “Translated search” to its Search Options panel that makes finding and reading content written in other languages easier. Translated search helps you find information from sites written in more than 40 languages.
