Google rolls out online dictionary
Google, the company that for many has come to define the Internet, has quietly rolled out an online dictionary offering the meanings of words in more than two dozen languages.
A visit Friday to a Google Dictionary service at google.com/dictionary showed a clean, simple Web page with a box for selecting languages from a drop-down list and a second box for typing in words to be defined.
The dictionary service offered definitions of words in 28 languages and to translate terms from or into English.
