Introducing the Vocabulist translation tool

Vocabulist: bookmarklet for help learning languages

If you want to learn a language it is a good idea to start reading a book in your preferred foreign language, reaching for the dictionary for any unknown words. This way you will increase your grammar and vocabulary in a natural manner whilst getting the hand of colloquial expressions. However reaching for the dictionary and searching for words is time consuming and gets in the way of reading the text. The vocabulist bookmarket found on the Ejectamenta website lets you have instant translations merely by hovering over unknown words. This works for just about any website (except those using iframes, like ebay!). The software tool optionally speaks the translated words as well. Just drag the bookmarklet to your browser bookmarklet bar to get started, then click on the bookmark button to activate the tool, next find a book (for instance an online Spanish version of Don Quixote) and start reading in your new language.
