This is pretty cool: give Lingro a URL and it hotlinks every word on that page to a dictionary, and it offers you the ability to translate the word you’re looking up into one of a number of other languages. As you can see below, I gave it the current home page on Slaw, clicked on “superior” and asked for a French translation. This would be really helpful I imagine if you were reading a text in a language with which you weren’t very familiar and needed to get the definition for a lot of words.


There’s review of Lingro on ReadWriteWeb.


  1. Thanks for the link. I seems to be a much faster way than to lookup the words in an online (not to mention paper-based) dictionary.
