Software/website which generates translations/definitions?

I´ve scoured the interwebs for something which can provide dictionary definitions for foreign languages into English. A perfect example of what I am looking for exists for Latin and Greek, e.g. http://www.nodictionaries.com/ and http://perseus.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/cgi-bin/vocab?lang=la

However, I can´t find anything that does this for French, Spanish, or any other language. I find it useful to use sortmylist.com and isolate each unique word in a text, but looking them up individually (or hoping google translate comes close) is quite daunting compared to the relative ease with which one can define groups of Latin/Greek texts.

Does anyone know a resource (whether online or software) which can do this with any languages other than Lat/Gr?

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

Cheers!

You can use Google Translate.

But make sure to separate each word by a period and two newlines to ensure that Google Translate doesn’t use surrounding words for the translation. The result must be cleaned by removing the newlines and periods.

Input French

#################
acheter.

arnaquer.

armoire.

aimable.
#################

Result English

#################
buy.

scammed.

cabinet.

friendly.
#################

It’s not perfect, but a first step.

By the way, if you don’t insert periods/newlines, the translation of “acheter arnaquer armoire aimable” would be “buy ripped friendly cabinet” :slight_smile:
