Nihongo English Dictionary
I’ve been learning japanese for some time now, but without too much effect. Nonetheless, in order to help myself a little bit, I decided to create a small japanese dictionary. As I don’t have the knowledge to actually create the word lists, I used EDICT (for words and translations) and 12Dicts (to choose the most common ones)… The interface is not very elaborate, but it’s still useable, at least for me… The app was developed under an emulator – where it looks pretty simple, but still OK -, but on an actual device (Nokia N95) it looks terrible – it doesn’t integrate too well with Series 60 Themes… You have been warned, but still, it’s not that bad:)
It has 11838 english and 19153 japanese words, due to some memory limitations. I cannot guarantee that the translations are correct, so use it at your own risk.
If you can’t find the word you are looking for using the main screen, try the browser – it helps!

Subset of EDICT words was selected based on 3esl.txt file from 12Dicts by Alan Beale.

App uses something around 2MB of memory, which is the limit for the emulator, but not for all phones…
