… but how is it called in English?

English is not my mother tounge as you can surely guess. So I often have to translate some words from German to English and vica verse or look up words I don't know. I had a nice tool called Babylon Translator. It was just a trial version and ceased to work after the trial period. After living without a translation program for some years and having to look up words in online dictionaries I decided to write a translation program myself since I did not want to open my browser everytime I wanted to look up a word.
The result of a few C# programming hours was a little tool called Translator. At the moment it uses the dictionary at to look up words maybe some more dictionaries will follow.
You can find the tool and source code here.

Have fun testing it and don't forget to give some feedback
