Nice widget, takes away at least one step.
Two things would make this widget even better though.
1. Choice between the English<>German / French<>German dictionary
2. Display of the results within the widget

Keep up the good work.

you're ideas are already in my plans smiley
This widget could be a nice Upgrade for my "Ask the Web"

But at first I have to check out why Ask Leo has problems with german characters like öäüß smiley

Great. I have seen your page, looks a bit OS 9 but oh well smiley The widget is nice and has potential.

I think you're having problems with the Umlaute because I think dashboard cannot send those unicode characters to a browser. You might circumvent this by loading everything in the widget but I don't know.
