Wordlink isn’t a dictionary per se but still very useful. What is does is to split your screen when you’re viewing a written text in Gaelic. The text will be on the left hand side of your screen and on the right hand you’ll see a frame with an online dictionary. With a sprinkling of black magic, it means you don’t have to type individual searches. All you have to do is click on a word on the left and it will automatically search for the term in the dictionary.
For example, it works really well with the clips and texts in Clilstore:
To use it with other sites than Clilstore, visit this page and enter an address (URL) into the adress field (Ctrl + c and Ctrl v are your friends, as always, for copy and past). Paste it in after the url=
For example like this:
And then hit Enter.

I think this “WordLink” thing is great, and I wanted to share with you a bookmarklet for it I just wrote that I think will help people:
If people add that script as a bookmark in their browser, then when they click on the “bookmark” they will be automatically taken to a WordLink page that is looking up the page they were on. So, if you go to “http://gd.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clisgear” and click the bookmark, your browser will load “http://multidict.net//wordlink/?sl=gd&url=http://gd.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clisgear”
I hope you find it useful, and that you update this page to show people how to use it.
