Select a word on a website and immediately look up its translation. No tabs, no windows. Guranteed!
This extension allows you to select a word or phrase on a website and to look it up in the LEO dictionary by simply pressing a keyboard shortcut. The dictionary pops up conveniently in the upper right corner inside your browser window. It does not open a new tab or window.
The shortcut defaults to Alt+W, however you can set it to virtually any shortcut in the options page. The language defaults to German - English and can also be configured in the options page.
Available languages are:
English ⇔ German
French ⇔ German
Spanish ⇔ German
Italian ⇔ German
Chinese ⇔ German
Russian ⇔ German
Portuguese ⇔ German
Polish ⇔ German

** NOTICE **
For existing users the shortcut changed from Alt+Q to Alt+W. I am sorry if this caused you any inconvenience, however it was necessary as the old shortcut caused a lot of trouble for some users.
