    hi there.

    i'm a language student (french, spanish, and plan to improve on my limited italian) and i need to find a good english-spanish and english-french (and vice-versa) dictionary.

    when i was on windows there was this freeware program called WebDicty, which sourced definitions from sites like word reference. i believe it was written by a person from spain, so if you try to google it to see what i mean, you may want to use spanish words if you're adding words.

    i don't want to boot into windows nor use parallels to access this on my windows partition, it is too slow for my 1 GB RAM macbook.

    i was wondering if anyone knows anything similar to WebDicty for mac? i am unsatisfied with the translator included on the dashboard.

    it can be freeware, shareware, whatevs, i just need to know about it so i can download/buy it. i'm a language student and want something more convenient than going to word reference and other websites.

    any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    if you need a stand alone try ultralingua site they have a few alternatives.
    on line wordreference is pretty good depending on your needs
    for french I use lexilogos on line it is great it is not a translation dictionary it is definition dico, the synonyms dico is pretty good too.
