but this is a very good tool : Digital Pali Reader
The DPR is a tool much like a hard-copy language reader, facilitating study of the Pali language at an advanced level. Rather than offering a translation for the text being read, a reader usually includes a dictionary with all of the difficult words found in the reader. While the DPR is far from perfect, it is sure to be useful for intermediate Pali students who wish to advance their studies to a higher level. The DPR differs from an ordinary reader in several respects:
- instant lookup of words, simply by clicking on a word in the passage being read. This avoids time spent looking for the word in a hard-copy dictionary or in another place on one’s computer.
- built in search function similar to that of the CSCD. Whereas the CSCD allows for only global searches or searches of entire pitakas, the DPR provides Nikaya and Book searches as well.
- includes several dictionaries: Pali-English, English-Pali, Pali proper names, and Concise Pali Dictionary. These dictionaries can be directly accessed from the control panel.
- several useful auxiliary utilities
