MacUpdate shows this as a "free" app, but it is really just an extremely crippled version of the paid version (this tactic is too much like CNET/Download.com). About 99% of the words you would want to look up are locked out of the free version of the app. It may be worth the 10 bucks, but I was so turned off by the 99% uselessness of the free version to consider paying for it.

And, of course, being where it unfortunately is, no chance to properly try the thing out before purchasing.

Shame. Could be great but we'll never know. Uh-uh.

Using Japanese, English, Thai, and Spanish daily, I checked the developer's page and found there is no mention of any other languages nor plans for other languages. The description of pay-for add-ons for the only languages mentioned also suggests that we must pay for each set of new phrases, and shows it is just a work-in-progress.
