About EUdict

EUdict is a collection of online dictionaries for the languages spoken mostly in the European Community. These dictionaries are the result of the work of many authors who worked very hard and finally offered their product free of charge on the internet thus making it easier to all of us to communicate with each other. For more information about the authors see Credits.

Some of the dictionaries have only a few thousand words, others have more than 250,000. There are 408 language pairs and over 11.2 million translations in total. Some of the words may be incorrectly translated or mistyped. Look at the list of available language pairs. EUdict is online since May 9, 2005 and English<>Croatian dictionary on since June 16, 2003.


There are several ways to use this dictionary. The most common way is by word input (you must know which language the word is in) but you can also use your browser's search box and bookmarklets (or favelets). There are two Japanese-English (and Japanese-French) dictionaries and one contains Kanji and Kana (Kana in English and French pair due to improved searching). For the same reason the Chinese dictionary contains traditional and simplified Chinese terms on one side and Pinyin and English terms on the other.

Enter a name for your search (e.g. "English=>Croatian []") and a keyword (e.g. "engcro"), then click OK. After integration, Opera offers more ways of searching. You can input a word into the toolbar's search field, you can search just with the mouse by double-clicking a word and selecting the menu option "Search With", or just with the keyboard, by typing "engcro SEARCH TERM" into the address bar.
