Chrome Extension - SpanishDict 1.0

No permission to download
There are several translation extensions available from the Chrome Web Store. The following is a link to an article that lists The 10 Best Translation Extensions for Chrome. I have been using the Google Translate Chrome Extension, but I frequently use spanishdict.com as a reference.

I became tired of copying and pasting a word from a web page to Span¡shD!ct, so I created a very simple Chrome Extension to add a Span¡shD!ct menu item to the Chrome Context Menu. The Chrome Context Menu is accessed with a right mouse click.

What does the Span¡shD!ct Chrome Extension do?
  • Add a menu item to the Chrome Context Menu for Span¡shD!ct.
  • Copy selected text from a web page and opens a new tab with Span¡shD!ct.
  • The Span¡shD!ct tab will display the dictionary or a translation dependent on the selected text.

spanishdict.com is a website that has a dictionary, conjugation, examples, pronunciation, and a thesaurus tab.
