Hi, I'm Markus and new here. I love to read English books on the PC. As I'm German though, I have to look up words, esp. on older texts, in a dictionary all the time. LEO.ORG is a very good one, it's free and has an API. So, just wondering if, in the reader app, it would be possible to add a right mouse klick feature - "look up in dictionary", in settings add a "dictionary URL" field and on marking a word and right klicking it open up a new window with the dictionary in it? Or you could add the dictionaries to the field? Shouldn't be that difficult. I do code, mainly web stuff, but haven't got a clue how to get started here. Greets from Stuttgart, Germany. PS. LEO.ORG can do Italian, Spanish, Chinese and Russian -> German too.
