Quick back-translations to verify your word choice
When translating into a foreign language, you may need to choose from among several words listed in the entry as possible translations. One way to make your choice more informed is to look up each variant in a foreign-native dictionary. This can be easily done by double-clicking on a translation variant inside a dictionary entry.
Full-text searches take only seconds to complete and find all the occurrences of the search term — which can be a word or a phrase — in the entire text of all the dictionaries, i.e. in the translations, examples, comments, definitions, etc. Additionally, ABBYY Lingvo will find the search term in the dictionaries of the reverse translation direction, so that you will also be presented with the entries where it is used as a translation equivalent.
Quickly look up unfamiliar terms in Wikipedia
In ABBYY Lingvo, you can quickly look up any unfamiliar term in Wikipedia, without leaving the dictionary.
Finding contexts on the Internet
If you need to see a word in its typical contexts, simply right-click on it and select the Search the Web command available inside all dictionary entries. ABBYY Lingvo uses Yandex to search for Russian words and Google to find words in all other languages.
