Review

Dictionaries is a solution for users who work on a daily basis with a wide variety of foreign languages that they either don't know well or don't know at all. All you need to do in order to start using this app's features is to go through a seamless installation process that lasts under one minute.

The moment you enter the app, you are welcomed by a minimalist GUI, with a standard menu and tabs, all wrapped around a black theme color.

The app itself works as an extension for the Dictionaries app, pre-installed, from your Mac. What it does, specifically, is to add more languages-as per your instruction-, and integrate bidirectional translation and pronunciation.

Once you've started the application, you discover that it provides support for over 80 languages and that it can help you, as a user, to save precious time from googling a certain word on your browser.

Besides the specific translation properties, Dictionaries comes with a cool feature that is able to translate words directly from Spotlight.

Overall, Dictionaries is a useful solution for expanding the translation capabilities of your Mac and thus allowing you to gain precious time. The price seems too high and the app does sometimes feel laggy.
