Sheels Hindi to English Dictionary 1

Sheels Hindi to English Dictionary is a simple little program that makes it easy for you to translate words and phrases between those two languages.

Hindi is an extremely complicated and complex language that uses individual characters to represent specific letters and sounds. When using online and web translators, you risk getting definitions that do not make sense or those that won't fit in the syntax of the sentence. This also makes it difficult to figure out how the words in a sentence go together. This free dictionary makes it easier to find the exact definitions that you need.

This app has a very basic interface that looks like something someone just designed in class, but that design makes this app easy for adults and kids to use. It has a simple search box near the top of the screen, which is where you enter the word you want to define. Off to the side is a virtual keyboard that features Hindi letters. When you have a word that you want to look up, you can use your mouse to click on each character to spell out that word. This keyboard also has buttons for deleting letters or deleting an entire word to look up a new one.

A nice feature on this app is that it actually predicts the words that you want to define. As soon as you enter one character, it brings up a list of words that start with that character in a box below the search box. When you see the right word, you can click on it and load that word to get the definition. The more characters you add, the more you will narrow down your search, which helps you find the exact word.

This Hindi to English Dictionary has a small box off to the side that shows you the type of word is it such as a noun or a verb. It then gives you a basic definition that helps you see what English word corresponds to that Hindi word. You can close down the program with a quick click on the close button on the top right corner of the screen, but you can also select the exit option from the toolbar at the top of the screen to shut it down. Though Sheels Hindi to English Dictionary may not have all words listed, it is an effective translation tool for finding English definitions for Hindi words.

Pros:

  • Includes a built-in keyboard with Hindi characters for quickly finding words
  • Shows you all matching and related words when you do a search
  • Gives you a short definition to go along with words
  • Capable of exporting words, phrases and text into Word documents
  • Works with Open Office documents

Cons:

  • Does not offer support for English to Hindi translations
  • Doesn't always respond as fast as some need
  • May not find matches for words you spell incorrectly

The Sheel's Hindi to English Dictionary is a simple but rich program that contains over 50,000 words and definitions. It comes loaded with features that are hard to find in similar programs, and users can have full access to the software for free. It runs perfectly on Windows 7, and I didn't experience any errors or problems when using the software.

The interface is designed to be simple. You can access the features of the dictionary by using the menu bar or pressing the relevant icons that are located on the main screen. The program lacks a certain visual appeal, but its functionality is what sets it apart from other utilities. You can switch from English to Hindi with a single click of the mouse, add and edit words, and search for a word by text or by number.

Definitions are quite good, and you can also follow words and learn their synonyms as well. The developer also includes a lot of documentation and provides a thorough explanation of how to use the software. The only problem is that I had to use Google to find the developer's blog because the contact information within the program is not up to date.

I like the simplicity of this program, and I can have it running in the background, adjust the size of the display, and copy and paste words without any problems. It is a great companion for my translation work, and it is much faster, accurate and manageable than Google Translate or other programs that I have tried in the past.

The fact that I can add and edit words is another great feature that I find beneficial. The process is fairly simple, and I don't need to go through a lot of steps to make modifications. This program is definitely designed with the end-user in mind, and I would recommend it for anyone who needs a English to Hindi dictionary on their computer.
