Featured Languages:English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Latin and Swahili. Example of use: You select to use the "English-French dictionary"; then, for each English word put-down on the scrabble board, the definition, in French, will be written to the HUD (see screenshot). This makes a nice screensaver, if you don't care for Scrabble. The application uses dictionaries from the xdxf project. Special characters, accents, circumflex, cedilla, etc are all handled by unicode.
