LingoPad Review

Fernando Ortega
A free, offline dictionary with support for German, English, French and other languages
A review of LingoPad by Fernando Ortega

LingoPad is a small, but very useful offline dictionary which comes pre-installed with support for German-English and English-German dictionaries. Not only that, but you may also access other, less comprehensive dictionaries from the web site including French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Turkish, Norwegian and Arabic.

Unlike other dictionaries, LingoPad may be used in an airplane or on the go since it doesn't rely on a connection to online services like Google Translate.

LingoPad offers an attractive user-interface with a standard left-panel with word lists and the right-panel providing a dictionary with translations and a useful thesaurus.

Since LingoPad is a totally free product, there are really no complaints except for its perhaps more limited capabilities in languages other than German and English. Other languages available are not for English translations, unfortunately.

LingoPad features and highlights:
  • German/English and English/German dictionaries
  • Other dictionaries are available for download: Spanish, French, Japanese, Chinese, Turkish, Kurdish, Norwegian and more
  • Import of own dictionaries possible (Unicode ready)
  • Freely definable user dictionaries
  • Wordlist editor
  • Search for beginning, ending and middle part of a word
  • Search for collocations
  • Activation possible with a customizable HotKey
  • Automatic search for a tagged word or word from the clipboard
  • List of latest search words
  • Portable application / no installation necessary
  • Offline use
  • Phonetic transcription for many English words
  • Direct links to look up words on Wikipedia and various search engines
