Mahāvyutpatti Sanskrit-Tibetan-Chinese Buddhist Dictionary Chrome Extension

The Mahāvyutpatti Sanskrit-Tibetan-Chinese Buddhist Dictionary Chrome Extension is now available. The extension adds a context menu when text on a web page is selected so that term can be used to lookup and entry in the dictionary. You can do multi-term lookup for longer Chinese phrases, and multi-language lookup with Sanskrit and Tibetan. See this demo on Youtube for details on how to use it.

To view status, disable or remove, in Chrome, go to Extensions - Manage extensions. The extension package includes the dictionary, which takes about 3 seconds to load and initialize indexes. Use it by selecting text on a page, right clicking, and selecting Lookup with NTI Reader ...

Mahāvyutpatti is a historic dictionary compiled for translation of Buddhist texts to Tibetan. As a Chrome Extension it can help you stay within the flow of a document, avoiding the need to skip out to other tabs to do dictionary lookups.

Try it out on web site like ‘Translating the Words of the Buddha,’ the Buddhist Digital Resource Center, the University of Oslo's multilingual corpus Thesaurus Literaturae Buddhicae, and many other Buddhist sites. For example, with the Aṣṭasāhasrikā Prajñāpāramitā Perfection of Wisdom in 8,000 Lines' Chinese-Sanskrit-Tibetan-English parallel text.

You can also bring it up in its own tab for offline use. Here are some screenshots.
