I am using Babylon for a while and it is pretty fits often my needs. But I am wondering if exists any good alternatives to it. I specified my needs below:

Key features

  • Broad dictionary support: Beside individual works, big and professional dictionaries like Oxford, Redhouse etc. should be available.

  • Offline use of dictionaries. I am not always have a internet connection. So, I need an offline product.

  • Quick ask, quick find: Babylon can recognize most words appears on the screen with one-click. But as installed dictionary count increases, query performance slow down. Also its GUI becomes heavier in latest versions.

Optional but plus

  • Text translation: Ability to translate sentences.

  • Up to date: Updates itself and dictionaries when connected to internet.

I hardly dig your automatic translation to English. You want a dictionary that misappropriates OED and Redhouse to your hard drive, You want it to become slower over time You will not use it if it ever translates a phrase, or attempts to update from internet.... –  ZaB Feb 23 '12 at 17:14
