Arabic Vocabulary, is a browser WebExtension based on open-source dictionary data. Just hover your cursor over an Arabic word and the translation in english pops up!

Word Lookup

The translation files are from the Linguistic Data Consortium (GPLv2). When a page loads, each word is quickly decomposed into prefix + stem + suffix using data from tableab, tableac and tablebc. Note that in Arabic, a particular word could have different decompositions and thus different definitions. The definitions of the prefix, stem and suffix are looked up and concatenated to form the final definition.


All Arabic words on the page are wrapped in span tags, some js is injected so that when the user hovers over the mouse, a tooltip with the definitions are shown.

great dictionary but I ask developer to please fix the bug of not showing translation after switching tabs. I recommend adding a button like other add-ons dictionaries for turning on and off so the translation can reset if a bug happens
