We love those portable Japanese electronic dictionaries, but who can afford to pay $300 or more for one? Try our offline Japanese-English dictionary and see how much faster and better a dictionary can be. It instantly displays words as you type in Kanji, kana, English keywords, or phonetic English for Japanese words. Our unique built-in Kanji keyboard lets you enter unknown Kanji visually – no stroke counting or trying to guess how they are pronounced. In addition to looking up words, our dictionary is also great fun to browse.

This dictionary, with over 175,000 Japanese words, 319,000 English definitions, and 24,000 example sentences, is an essential tool for Japanese linguists and serious students.

Search with Kanji, Kana or English keywords. The dictionary automatically detects which is being used. You can also change modes to enter English phonetic spellings for Japanese words. Dictionary entries are shown instantly when you touch a search word and display the Kanji (if there is a Kanji form), kana, Romanized Japanese, English definition and parts of speech, example sentences and cross-references. Linguistics notes give context and additional information about the entries. Instantly jump to cross-references just by touching them.

The built-in Kanji Keyboard works for all 5604 Kanji used in the dictionary. The keyboard works seamlessly with your favorite Japanese keyboard and is completely visual. Just pick out which visual elements are in the Kanji. As you touch each element, the keyboard adapts to show you only the minimum set of elements that are needed next. Most unknown Kanji can be found by touching only 1 – 3 elements. By far the fastest and easiest way to find unknown Kanji.

Dictionary entries can be tagged for future reference with bookmarks. Bookmark categories can be entered on the fly by creating tags. There is also a history list of past word selections.
