Aard

Offline dictionary
  • looks up words fast even with huge dictionaries like English Wikipedia
  • looks up words in multiple dictionaries in multiple languages without switching
  • works great as an offline Wikipedia reader
  • uses same the efficient, highly compressed dictionary data storage format as the desktop version
  • it can integrate with both FBReader and Cool Reader

Ready-made dictionaries can be found on the website, or you can roll your own with the tools on the website.
