Powerful Arabic-English dictionary

Translate and define words in Arabic and English with a click of your mouse.

The VerbAce-Pro - Arabic-English-Arabic Dictionary is a simple, intuitive program that lets users translate and define words in English and Arabic. With more than 60,000 entries in each language, the program is a powerful tool for users seeking to navigate between the two tongues.

The interface is sleek and offers two ways to enter text: either type it directly into the program's text box, or click on a word that you want to see defined and translated. Users can adjust the combination of mouse and keyboard buttons they use to define words; for example, the default is Alt-left click. A keyboard shortcut can also be customized that lets users quickly bring the program to the front. Users can set the font size and style to their liking. The program shifts effortlessly between English and Arabic; Arabic words can be entered manually with the help of an easily-accessed Arabic keyboard built into the program. Arabic-language users who are already somewhat fluent in English will find the program's additional phonetic spellings of English words a helpful pronunciation guide.

The program is fully functional for its 30-day trial period, allowing users to explore all of its features. That said, there aren't that many features to explore, but the dictionary does what it should and does it well. The program installs and uninstalls easily, although it does leave an empty folder behind in the Program Files after installation. Users seeking an unobtrusive dictionary that melds seamlessly into their regular computer use should find that this program fits the bill.
