Plug-in for online dictionaries and encyclopedias

To perfom automatic lookups in dictionaries and encyclopedias on the web, Progresso has produced a special plug-in for Windows.  This allows the user to select a word or a text in Microsoft Word, for instance, and subsequently look it up in an online dictionary/encyclopedia.

The plug-in works with almost any Windows program, not only Word.

Especially for Alinea’s online dictionaries, Progresso has created the S√łgeassistent (i.e. Search Assistant).  Anybody may freely download this plug-in, however, a subscription is required to view the results in Alinea’s dictionaries.
