Language Aid Plugins

Google Translate

Amazing language translation is now at your fingertips with the Google Translate plugin.  Google Translate supports a number of languages and can even automatically detect the source language in many cases.  Use this plugin to quickly decipher and foreign text you come across.  This plugin can help break down language barriers and allow you to explore the other sides of the internet.  

Japanese Lookups (WWWJDIC)

Before Language Aid supported plugins, it was a tool that was used as a simple and fast front-end to Jim Breen's WWWJDIC.  Nowadays it can still be used for amazing Japanese dictionary lookups from the vast set of dictionaries present in the WWWJDIC.  The WWWJDIC can perform dictionary lookups on huge chunks of Japanese text and present the results in a very clean manner.  For anyone learning Japanese, Japanese speakers learning other languages or anyone who has a small interest/need in Japanese language services will find this plugin very useful. 

Chinese Lookups (MDBG)

Similar in function to the WWWJDIC plugin, this plugin interfaces to the great Chinese dictionary lookup service MDBG.  Features include both simplified and traditional character lookups, choice of pinyin style and choice of mirrors.  This plugin is of great use to those who are wishing to study or translate Chinese.  With a quick flip of the lookup trigger you can get access to the vast database of dictionary lookups provided the MDBG which is based on the Unihan and CEDICT dictionaries.
