The elisp package edict.el is an instance of Lookup. It is often referred to simply as edict, which is confusing because it is associated with Edict, the Japanese dictionary. The lisp package can work with other dictionaries.

edict.el allows searching a local dictionary (e.g. Edict, Kanjidic) for character at point or a region. Search results are displayed in an Emacs buffer.

Package availability

Suse package can also be used on Windows XP (will describe modifications later).

Specifying dictionaries

Add lisp for this later.


  • edict-search-english
  • edict-search-kanji
