Happy Translating


Ever find yourself working on a small translation, yet still have multiple windows open to manage everything? For example, the source in one window, your translation in another and a web browser to look up that odd term you want to get a little more info on.

Happy Translating packs all of that into one window to allow for quick and easy management. With EDict built in for offline searching, Happy Translating is ready to help you with any Japanese English work you may have.

But that's not all. With Web Dictionary Links you can add links to your frequently used Internet dictionaries and look up terms in multiple places with button presses. Once set up, simply highlight the term or phrase and press ⌘1 through ⌘0 to access the first ten Web Dictionary Links that you have set up. Or select the Dictionary menu and pick any of the links you have set up.

Setting up Web Dictionary Links only simply requires you to take the URL of your desired site and replace the place {query} into the url where the search term should go. For example, Japanese wikipedia would be http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/{query}. If you were to then highlight 帽子 and select the Wikipedia link from the Dictionary menu, the bottom area would then proceed to browse to http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/帽子.
