Multidict makes it easy to find online dictionaries in many languages, and to swop quickly between them.
|①||You can change the interface language.|
|②||The Multidict interface has two modes, “basic” and “advanced”. The “advanced” mode shows all the facilities, while the “basic” mode is clearer and less cluttered and shows only the main facilities.|
|③||You can switch Multidict easily between http protocol and https protocol. The Internet is currently in the process of changing over from http protocol to https, which is more secure, over the course of several years. We prefer to use https wherever possible, but unfortunately some dictionaries still only work with http, hence the need for this fallback.|
|④||You can click the ‘↔’ symbol to swop the source language and target language.|
|⑤||You can click “Esc” to leave Multidict and go to the dictionary’s own homepage.|
|⑥||Multidict sometimes provides quick links to closely related languages.|
|⑦||This link makes it easy to select to select monolingual dictionaries, by setting the target language to be the same as the source language.|
|⑧||Multidict has a “favicon” for each dictionary. Once you start recognising them, you can use them to swop more quickly from dictionary to dictionary.|
