Cambridge Dictionary of American English 3.1
Cambridge Dictionary of American English provides definitions for about 40,000 words
Since it's only supposed to be a dictionary and nothing more, Cambridge Dictionary of American English relies on quite a basic interface, with intuitive menus and easy to use tools.
The overall look is very clean, while the layout is pretty straightforward to let users quickly search for a specific term.
A search box is obviously available and so is a list of similar terms. It's enough to type the term you're looking for in the aforementioned search box and the definition is displayed right in the main window, with no other clicks required.
There's not much to configure about Cambridge Dictionary of American English, as everything's pretty basic, but a tiny options screen is still available to offer you a bunch of settings.
Besides the fact that it provides automatic clipboard translate to quickly find the definition of the word you copy to clipboard, Cambridge Dictionary of American English also offers a separate feature to translate any term as soon as you double click it.
It may not be surprising at all, but it's worth mentioning that the program works very fast regardless of the Windows version, running on low resources and without affecting system performance.
All in all, Cambridge Dictionary of American English is a handy piece of software, but it still needs updates to provide definitions for more terms. Plus, further upgrades, such as support for idioms and other English language tools would be a great improvement.
