Nowadays, you can easily look up the meaning of various words online, but a desktop application that can perform this function is a lot more convenient, and they often provide more features than a basic web service.
Multiicon 3 Dictionary is a user-friendly program that can help you find the equivalents or various English words in Hindi, Gujarati and Urdu. In addition, it provides you with the correct English pronunciations and includes a useful virtual keyboard.
As the program’s name suggests, it supports a total of three languages, namely Hindi, Gujarati and Urdu, and you can translate words from any of these to English or vice versa.
To help you write special characters that may not be easy to insert normally, the application provides you with a handy virtual keyboard. It is displayed in a separate window and can be toggled on or off at any time.
When you have located a word in any of the available dictionaries, you can double-click it to listen to its audio rendering, provided by the built-in speech engine.
The program also displays a talking parrot animation in a separate window, but you can disable this function if you find it to be too distracting.
When it comes to looks, Multiicon 3 Dictionary is far from impressive, as user interface appears to be very outdated.
Additionally, switching between the three available dictionaries takes some time, during which the application does not respond to any commands. While the program never crashed during our tests, these slow transitions may prove to be quite irritating.
In conclusion, Multiicon 3 Dictionary is a handy application that enables you to translate words between English and Hindi, Gujarati or Urdu. It offers a helpful talking dictionary and a useful virtual keyboard for inserting special characters.
