JLookUp is a Japanese↔English dictionary program for Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, and XP.
JLookUp was born because, basically, I got tired of using JQuickTrans, so I asked myself, 'Can we do better?' (to quote Mister Glinos). I sure felt that we could, so I started JLookUp and produced a piece of software better than JQuickTrans--and free.
Some features include:
- Built-in kana IME
- This means that it will convert what you type--as you type--to hiragana or katakana.
- ROMAji to kana conversion
- This means that you can type using normal characters and it will convert them to Japanse for you when you search.
- kana-insensitive search
- Sort of like a case-sensitive search (but for kana).
- Search in the front/middle/back
- The normal ways of searching for text.
- Wildcard support
- Japanese searches support '_' (any number of characters, usually '*') and '?' (any one character) wildcards.
- Match substrings of the text
- Find all words possible from the text.
- Kanji radical lookup
- Look up unknown kanji by selecting its radicals.
- Multiple dictionary support
- Add your own EDICT-format dictionaries.
- English searching.
- Now very similar to a Google search (compared to before *wink*)
- Tons of encoding support.
