Those of you who may need to use the dictionary search facility mentioned in the previous post whilst offline will be pleased to know that you can download the whole thing and do precisely that. The file is about 600MB, once you’ve downloaded it, unzip it, and then from your browser, click: Open File, and locate the file called: “index” in the directory that you downloaded. It should then open up and you can work offline, walhamdulillaah.
Here is the link to download the whole thing: http://ejtaal.net/aa/readme.html#download-for-offline-use.

Here’s a truly remarkable resource for those who regularly need to use Arabic-English dictionaries. On this page you can search both Hans-Wehr’s dictionary and Lane’s Lexicon at the same time. What is most useful is the fact that you can type in the base root of the word you’re looking for in Arabic and it will show you the word in Hans-Wehr first and if you scroll down it will then show you where the same word occurs in Lane’s Lexicon.
