Shortcut to search any highlighted word in Japan Dict and Jisho (Mac)


I made a shortcut to search any highlighted word in Japan Dict. I based it on one I got for Jisho, and experimented to get it to work. Basically it’s a simple Automator script you save in Services, and make a shortcut for that. The Automator script is just a Run Shell Script with the following commands

open “${@}

and another for Jisho

open “${@}

any questions?


I was curious cause I’d never heard of “Japandict” but it looks like it is also another EDICT based dictionary, so you shouldn’t get different results between the two.


dunno, but I like it. It’s nicely laid out, easy to find stuff.
