Vietnamese-English dictionary

All you need to do is type the word you need to translate from Vietnamese to English in the search bar to get started. You can type a Vietnamese word to translate into English; however it works just as well the other way around as both language combinations are searched through when you search for a translation. You are then shown the result page for the Vietnamese word you entered and all the sections related to it: translations, grammatical information, synonyms, context sentences and forum entries in Vietnamese.
