    A friend of mine was wondering if there is an online dictionary that can give the meanings of the words as the cursor moves over them. She needs them in chinese so what I am really looking for is an application where the english word is translated into chinese as the cursor moves over it.

    Thanks a ton

    You still haven't started? :eek:

    I've never seen such a dictionary but it would certainly be useful.

    LiveDictionary and dict.cn

    As far as I know, there is not an online dictionary that can give the meanings of the words as the cursor moves over them. But the "LiveDictionary" can do it.

    LiveDictionary is a small software which works with Safari (the web browser). And you can download many dictionaries for this software. One of those dictionaries is "CEDIT english -> chinese dictionary".

    There are two website that provide some free dictionary services: "iciba.com" and "dict.cn".
    I recommend the dict.cn, they provide a search-word link that you can drag it into your browser's bookmark bar. After that, You can hightlight a word in a webpage, and use the keyboard shortcut to search this word. (If you dragged the link on the first position of bookmark bar, then your keyboard shortcut would be apple-1.)
