|when gold speaks, not even the least reason avails||auro loquente nihil pollet quævis ratio|
|a competent person in my opinion, as he was accustomed often to hear him, and published his sentiments after the subject of them ceased to exist; there is no reason therefore to suppose that his partiality has misled him from the truth (Cicero)||idoneus quidem mea sententia, præsertim quum et ipse eum audiverit, et scribat de mortuo; ex quo nulla suspicio est amicitiæ causa eum esse mentitum|
|a hungry populace listens not to reason, nor cares for justice, nor is bent by any prayers (Seneca)||nec rationem patitur, nec æquitate mitigatur nec ulla prece flectitur, populus esuriens|
|a man does not marvel at what he sees frequently, even though he be ignorant of the reason. If anything happens that he has not seen before, he calls it a prodigy (Cicero)||quod crebo videt non miratur, etiamsi cur fiat nescit. Quod ante non vidit, id si evenerit, ostentum esse censet|
|A prohibited wrong. A crime that society decides is wrong for some reason, not inherently evil||Malum prohibitum|
|accursed hunger for gold (Virgil)||auri sacra fames|
|all men now worship gold, all other types of reverence being done away||aurum omnes victa jam pietate colunt|
|an unknown (or untold) mass of silver and gold (Virgil)||ignotum argenti pondus et auri|
|as gold is worth more than silver, so is virtue worth more than gold (Horace)||vilius argentum est auro, virtutibus aurum|
|as the yellow gold is tested in the fire, so the faith of friendship can only be known in the time of adversity (Ovid)||scilicet, ut fulvum spectatur in ignibus aurum, tempore sic duro est inspicienda fides|
|because of the fact, because, for this reason||pro eo|
|by gold all good faith has been banished, by gold our rights are abused, the law itself follows gold, and soon there will be an end to every modest restraint||auro pulsa fides, auro venalia jura, aurum lex sequitur, mox sine lege pudor|
|by parity of reason||pari ratione|
|cause, reason, motive, pretext, interest||causa|
|Common Tomato, Loveapple, Gold-apple||Lycopersicum esculentum Mill. (Solanum lycopersicum L.)|
|count it the greatest sin to prefer your existence to your honor, and for the sake of life to lose every reason for living (Juvenal)||summum crede nefas animam præferre pudori, et propter vitam vivendi perdere causas|
|courage avails||animus valet|
|disparagement and calumny are devoured with a greedy ear; flattery wears the badge of servitude, whilst malignity speaks the tone of independence, and is therefore well received (Tacitus)||obtrectatio ac livor pronis auribus accipiuntur; quippe adulationi fædum crimen servitutis, malignitati falsa species libertatis inest|

EUdict (European dictionary) is a collection of online dictionaries for the languages spoken mostly in Europe. These dictionaries are the result of the work of many authors who worked very hard and finally offered their product free of charge on the internet thus making it easier to all of us to communicate with each other. Some of the dictionaries have only a few thousand words, others have more than 320,000. Some of the words may be incorrectly translated or mistyped.
Esperanto is only partially translated. Please help us improve this site by translating its interface.

There are several ways to use this dictionary. The most common way is by word input (you must know which language the word is in) but you can also use your browser's search box and bookmarklets (or favelets).
Look at the complete list of languages: Available language pairs
There are two Japanese-English (and Japanese-French) dictionaries and one contains Kanji and Kana (Kana in English and French pair due to improved searching). For the same reason the Chinese dictionary contains traditional and simplified Chinese terms on one side and Pinyin and English terms on the other.
Perhaps the best way to enable dictionary search is through integration into the search field of your browser. To add EUdict alongside Google, Yahoo!, Amazon and other search engines in Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer, simply click on link after the title Browser integration, select appropriate language pair and confirm your decision. And you're ready to go; select EUdict from the drop-down list in search field (Firefox) or address bar (IE), input a word and press Enter. In Chrome, first click on a language pair and change the search keyword in the field 'Keyword' to a keyword (eg: 'eudict'). Afterwards, you simply type the chosen keyword in the address bar to start the search in the chosen dictionary.
If you want to type a character which isn't on your keyboard, simply pick it from a list of special characters. If you are unable to add a bookmarklet in Mozilla Firefox according to the instructions above, there is another way; right click on a link and select Bookmark this link… Now you can drag this link from Bookmarks to the Bookmarks Toolbar.
Instead of clicking the Search button, just press Enter. Although EUdict can't translate complete sentences, it can translate several words at once if you separate them with spaces or commas. Sometimes you can find translation results directly from Google by typing: eudict word. If you are searching for a word in Japanese (Kanji) dictionary and not receiving any results, try without Kana (term in brackets). If you are searching for a word in the Chinese dictionary and not receiving any results, try without Pinyin (term in brackets). Disable spellchecking in Firefox by going to Tools → Options → Advanced → Check my spelling as I type. Why not add a EUdict search form to your web site? Form
