Is it different from the web-based dictionary?
No, not at all. You can use the Desktop version exactly the same way as the online version, that is, to look up words, find translations and grammatical applications, identify phrases and idioms, and even hear the correct pronunciation of words.
What languages are covered?
You have the choice of a number of bilingual dictionaries from Danish to any of the following languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Norwegian, Swedish, and vice versa. You also have access to a few specialized and subject-based dictionaries, including Økonomisk Ordbog (economic dictionary).
Hint to settings
Go to settings to decide where you want the dictionary to appear and if you want it to launch whenever you start your computer.
