The service provides word lookup access and provides the English-language definition. It also provides word pairs to match equivalents in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, and a number of other European languages. Some Asian languages also are supported. A thesaurus function is also available to match submitted terms with synonyms.
API methods support submission of the term to look up and the two-letter code for the national language dictionary to consult. The API returns an English language definition, or an equivalent word in the non-English language specified by the request. For some terms, it will provide alternative translations in addition to the primary translation.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
