JBrute is a stand-alone English - Japanese and Japanese - English dictionary lookup program. It uses publicly available data for the dictionary and examples (see acknowledgements below). The current distribution contains in excess of 170,000 dictionary entries and a similar number of example-of-use sentences.
Think of it as full-featured, PC-version of dedicated electronic dictionary device: a fast and easy way to look up both English and Japanese words and phrases. Features include:
Key-by-key lookup in both English and Japanese. As you type, entries that start with your query immediately appear in the left search pane.
Power searches. Every word of the dictionary and examples can be searched (including Wildcard and quoted phrase searches).
Vocabulary List for electronic text. Given a section of Japanese text (say in a PDF file or a web page), you can automatically create a list of words/phrases found in the text.
Examples and Kanji meanings. Each dictionary entry includes both examples (where available, and they usually are) and information about each Kanji character used.
It supports the OS's native IME. Thus you can enter search terms in both English and Japanese. If you enter it in Japanese, you can even "paint" the Kanji. If you don't know about the OS's IME, see the Help file.
This product uses the EDICT and KANJIDIC files as the source of the dictionary content. These files are the property of the Electronic Dictionary Research and Development Group at Monash University, and are used in conformance with the Group's licence.
