Find the Japanese symbol dictionary that suits your needs.

As any Japanese language teacher will tell you, a good Japanese symbol dictionary is an essential tool to advance your studies and knowledge.

If you are doing most of your studies primarily online, the following list of online tools will really help you in learning Japanese.


Japanese Symbol Dictionary

Japanese Symbol Dictionary at Babylon I've been using Babylon for over 3 years and it has been a great tool to receive excellent translations and word definitions; it is easy to use, and, if you spend a lot of time on your computer, indispensable.

If you are learning Japanese (or intend to), I recommend Babylon's Japanese Genius Meikyo Premium Dictionary. The Genius dictionaries contain excellent translations, all with easy to use examples; It also gives you language nuances, grammatical points, rich information on honoric words and Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana usages. They offer a seven-day trial!

What is Babylon?

Simply put, Babylon is a desktop translation software that works on the idea of a single-click translation.

Here is a short YouTube presentation of Babylon software features:

Babylon also has an array of free dictionaries and glossaries: Check out their free English to Japanese dictionaries.

Tangorin is free online Japanese dictionary that enables you to search in in Romaji, Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. It is a great tool to learn the brush strokes of Kanji as it shows the number of strokes in a small flash presentation. I love it and I am sure you will too.

For the beginner learner, I highly recommend the online Japanese-English dictionary by Denshi Jisho: It provides a great deal of information on each searched terms and example sentences. And, best of all for the beginner, you can also search their dictionaries using romaji. Their resources provide us with translations from Japanese to English and English to Japanese.
