Japanese dictionary

Dear All

Does someone know an offline (or, if not available, online) English-Japanese dictionary where all the japanese words are doubled in hiragana or katakana? Thank you in advance Anton

this site has furigana if that is what you are looking for: https://jisho.org/search/%E3%81%98%E3%81%97%E3%82%87

There is also a site that can add furigana to any text: http://furigana.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/index.cgi


thank you very much. But jisho is an online tool only, right? is there is app with that feature?


On a computer (Windows, Mac, Linux), I highly recommend "Tagaini Jisho" for an offline English↔Japanese dictionary:



imiwa? is an app i use. You can look up kanji by radicals, as well as vocab in both english and japanese (it has other languages automatically enabled too, so, for example, if you wanted both the german and english words for a japanese word it shows both). Most words have examples, with the exceptions of more rare words (such as カマトト, pretended innocence). It's available for iOS, but I'm not so sure about Android.


imiwa? has helped me enormously. Another useful feature: it gives you all possible conjugations for any verb, so if you're not sure about that て-form, you can easily check.

No Android, unfortunately.


If you use iOS, there's a great dictionary app called "Japanese." It has kana and kanji for every entry, can be used offline, and has a plethora of other amazing features (handwriting input for kanji, JLPT vocab and kanji lists, words by subject, and even a flash card system)


Hi !

This dictionary also has pronunciation on every word : http://rut.org/cgi-bin/j-e/jis/tty/FG=r/dict?sDict=on There are many options for display, as well as to search in specialized dictionaries, I really love it.

Iirc you can look for "JWPce" for an offline software which uses the same Edict dictionary content.


Tangorin! http://tangorin.com/ They also have offline apps, though I've never used them.
