Did you know that you can download dictionaries for your Microsoft Reader?

 

http://www.microsoft.com/reader/downloads/dictionaries.asp

 

You can download the Encarta Pocket Dictionary (a monolingual English dictionary), as well as a series of bilingual dictionaries (English-French, English-German, English-Spanish and English-Italian, including the other direction to translate from these languages into English).

 

You can use your Reader to read an eBook on your Pocket PC. The nice thing is that the dictionaries are nicely integrated and enable you to look up a word in your eBook. The following article from Dan Hanttula’s Pocket PC Magazine blog explains how to download an eBook on a Pocket PC; he also gives a nice picture illustrating the dictionary look-up process: http://www.pocketpcmag.com/blogs/index.php?blog=2&title=super_charge_ms_reader_on_your_pocket_pc&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1

Isn’t it nice to click on a word and get the definition or a translation while reading your eBook?
