Image from store Leo Dictionary Widget
Description from store This extension allows you to select a word or phrase on a website and to look it up in the LEO dictionary by simply pressing a keyboard shortcut. The dictionary pops up conveniently in the upper right corner inside your browser window. It does not open a new tab or window. The shortcut defaults to Alt+W, however you can set it to virtually any shortcut in the options page. The language defaults to German - English and can also be configured in the options page. Available languages are: English ⇔ German French ⇔ German Spanish ⇔ German Italian ⇔ German Chinese ⇔ German Russian ⇔ German Portuguese ⇔ German Polish ⇔ German For feature requests and bug reports please contact me at [email protected] ** NOTICE ** For existing users the shortcut changed from Alt+Q to Alt+W. I am sorry if this caused you any inconvenience, however it was necessary as the old shortcut caused a lot of trouble for some users. ** NEW IN VERSION 2.0.2 ** - Now also works with Facebook and GMail ** NEW IN VERSION 2.0.4 ** - Apple Mac users can now use the command key as a part of their shortcut ** NEW IN VERSION 2.1 ** - Open the dictionary by selecting a word and right click. ** NEW IN VERSION 2.3 ** - Bug fixes

  • (2019-09-12) Lucas Rotava: It is a great idea, but needs improvement in the implementation. A resizable window would be an awesome start, so that we don't need to scroll to find the results.
  • (2019-09-07) Vamsidhar G: Very handy widget. For people who have troubles to scroll through the whole window, switch to the mobile version that appears as notification!
  • (2019-03-14) Samson Daniel: This thing is bad. Instead of opening a small window for the word definition, it opens a whole page where you must scroll horizontally and vertically with bloated page. Why not just open a small dialog or window box to read what a word means .. arghh
  • (2018-12-27) Window not resizable, content centered in a larger window than the fixed size so I have to scroll every time to find the translation. I did manage to move it so the title bar was hidden under the bookmark bar (so I couldn't close it and couldn't use keyboard commands to move it either) and had to uninstall/reinstall it to get it back. Really handy as a lookup but not very usable.
  • (2018-07-31) husoranger: This application is amazing, but it has problem with its user agent... it displays results as windows web page, it used to display results as a mobile app, which had a better interface, it should be fixed...
  • (2017-09-07) Cal: Vraiment très utile, mais la traduction Français-Allemand est la seule qui ne fonctionne pas pour l'instant, malheureusement. Ça mérite tout de même 5 étoiles ! Really useful even if the French-German translation is the only one which doesn't work for now. Even so, it deserves its 5 stars.
  • (2017-07-31) Erik Brewer: Used to be great, as it required no external searches or tabs/windows. Now, the widget just returns a "404 - not found, nginx" error. Doesn't seem to work on any site that I tested. Shame. Edit: Uninstalled the widget, closed chrome completely, oped it again, re-installed, and it works. Great widget
  • (2017-03-23) Neil Keifer: does not work on http://www.spiegel.de/
  • (2017-03-12) Philipp Grafendorfer: Eigentlich eine tolle app aber seit Kurzem unbrauchbar wegen adblock., Sorry aber es ist nunmal so: user hassen Werbung und die Zwangsbeglückung ist nicht der Weg. Da zahle ich lieber dafür keine Werbung sehen zu müssen.
  • (2016-12-10) Rene Kicker: Super Widget!!!
  • (2016-11-03) Matthew S: This is garbage. How do you work anything?
  • (2016-10-31) Tyler Kropp: It is great being able to add a custom button to pop the little translator up, which updates as you highlight on a page, for example. Leo is the best translation for German/English, too, in my opinion.
  • (2016-08-20) Alexander CPunkt: Select a word, right click and get the translation instant on same tab -> works great
  • (2016-04-28) It doesn't work on all webpages, but it seems to on most. Very helpful for a quick look-up.
  • (2016-04-15) Christoph Gorgulla: Very convenient and nice!
  • (2015-10-21) Gugelhupf Mandolin: As handy as it should be. Die beste Erweiterung, die ich gefunden habe um Vokabeln beim Lesen nachzuschlagen.
  • (2015-06-27) Ralf Dietrich: Es macht genau was es soll und nicht mehr. Super!
  • (2015-04-25) 愛紅: Works fine for me! Restart your computer if you're having issues :) Super helpful!
  • (2015-04-10) Samuel Reichen: Schnell und geil...
  • (2015-03-14) Chi Hung Ko: Funktioniert nicht
  • (2015-02-21) Maximilian Frank: Eigentlich ja ganz nützlich, aber es fehlen entscheidende Features. - Warum übernimmt das Pop-Up nach Druck des Shortcuts (zB ALT+W) nicht das markierte Wort automatisch in das Suchfeld? Das Abtippen nervt. So muss ich das Pop-Up jedes Mal schließen und wieder neu öffnen, was mich zum zweiten Punkt führt. - Warum lässt sich das Pop-Up nicht mit ESC schließen, sondern man muss mit der Maus das Browser-Fenster aktivieren und dann wieder den Shortcut drücken (oder mit der Maus auf das X, was noch umständlicher ist)? In dieser Form ist die Extension von dict.cc leider besser. Was dort aber auch nicht funktioniert: warum listet es mir nicht schon im Kontextmenü Übersetzungsvorschläge auf, wie zB auch in WORD? Das wäre das non-plus-ultra.
  • (2015-01-17) Rodrigo: Vírus Vírus !!!!
  • (2014-06-23) Peter Juras: Klasse! Beste Extension für Chrome!
  • (2014-06-13) Jochen Hartl: Super tool! Macht genau das, was es soll und ist ungemein nützlich.
  • (2014-06-09) Simon Wimmer: Super nützlich, super einfach, super geil :)

    I have added in chrome and when I press alt+w on any webpage then any window is not appearing on the right corner as expected.
  • (2017-09-07, v:2.4) Cal: French doesn't work
    The widget works perfectly for all languages, except for the French-German translation. I have to use the English-German translation for now, but it's not ideal. Even so, I must say thanks for all the work :)
  • (2017-07-31, v:2.4) Erik Brewer: 404 problem
    Had the 404 problem. Uninstalled the widget, closed out chrome completely, restarted, installed the widget, now it works
  • (2017-07-12, v:2.4) Beth Lillskau: doesn't work
    I have read the other submissions about the 404 problem. I deleted the widget and reinstalled and now I get nothing when I click a word. I'm very frustrated because I have used this a lot.
  • (2017-06-25, v:2.4) Ekaterina Kravtchenko: Doesn't work
    Widget doesn't work at all for several weeks now; icon is grayed out, removing/reinstalling doesn't help.
  • (2017-05-03, v:2.4) Bela Pesics: 404 Not Found
    I only get 404 Not Found
  • (2017-05-01, v:2.4) SL IT: Extension geht wieder
    Sollte jetzt wieder funktionieren. Die URLs für die Übersetzungseite bei LEO hatte sich nach einem Relaunch geändert. LG
