Dictionary for PC (also known as “The Free Dictionary by Farlex”) is an education and reference application developed by Farlex, the creators of several dictionaries, library, and definition listing platforms that are visited by over 50 million online users every month.

The app supports not only English but a total of 13 international languages and has the ability to translate words into 40 languages. It supports advanced search, incredibly detailed report for each found term (including synonyms, antonyms, related words, and pictures), multilingual interface, create and manage bookmarks, syncing bookmarks via Windows account function, and much more.

While the core functionality of the app is of course centered on the easy discovery of search terms and learning much about their definitions, use in sentences, and even similar words historical versions of the English language, this streamlined app also offers users an easy and fun way to discover new words in the well-designed main dashboard screen that features several fun activities and showcases such as Word of the Day, Idiom of the Day, Spelling Bee, Match Up game, Article of the Day and Quote of the Day.

In addition to the comprehensive support for words regularly used in common conversations and written text, this app also has in-depth and detailed support for specialty terms that are used in modern Medicine, Legal, Financial, and other modern professions.

The user interface of this English Dictionary is built upon the best practices found in the Windows “Modern” apps, enabling users with both mouse and touch controls to easily discover all of its features, search for words and find their meaning. The main interface is separated into several tabs located on the far-left corner of the app, with an eye-catching search text box always present on the top. Users can bookmark pages, share the content they found interesting via social networks, and even play fun games and earn points and badges that will showcase the level of their knowledge.

As part of the Windows 11/Windows 10 Store, all that users need to download and install this app is to visit its official page on Windows Store and click the large blue “Get” button. In addition to supporting the development effort of the Farlex company, the usage of this app will also benefit hungry children through The Free Dictionary's integrated partnership with the World Food Program charity. The Dictionary app from Farlex is 100% FREE and can be used on all modern PCs running Windows 8, 10, and 11.
