Using WebTranslate and LiveScan

MDBG Chinese Reader lets you summon multiple web-based translation services with one click. From the HighlightScan and ClipboardScan windows, select Chinese. Right-click and choose WebTranslate. Your default web browser windows will open with Google and Microsoft Bing translations. Since WebTranslate preserves the original web advertising for Google and Bing, there is no charge for using WebTranslate services.

When viewing the translations in your browser, hover your mouse over the Chinese text to see the full semantic range of definitions. MDBG Chinese Reader's default Chinese-English dictionary, CC-CEDICT, contains over 115,000 entries with modern Chinese terms, names (people, companies, government agencies), idioms and slangs.

Some features are supported only in Standard, Professional and Ultimate Editions.
