Korean Dictionary in real time.

Ever read a web page in English and come across a word and wondered what it means?
First you have to reach for your dictionary and find the word. It sort of kills the fun of reading.

Well now there is an easier way. You can simply place the mouse cursor over the word you are having trouble with and a little box (tooltip) will pop up and explain the word in Korean.
This takes less then a second!

So, how do I do this?

You need the Google Toolbar (

WordTranslator currently supports translation from English into Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Japanese, Korean, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
