JDDict is a Japanese-German dictionary module for CLex. I ported the freely
available data to Newton. The dictionary is a Romaji indexed Japanese-German
dictionary. You should follow the usual Hepburn transcription to look up
Japanese words. The only exception is that the long vowel is retained with
corresponding 'a','u', and 'o'.

WHAT YOU NEED

A Newton with NOS2.0 or later. At least a set of Japanese/Chinese font in
unicode format. You can find one on my homepage or on Info-Mac -- Freeware.)

CLex dictionary engine. CLex is a shareware multilingual dictionary engine.
Notably it supports Chinese/Japanese and other script systems. There is a
built-in memo so that you can put a new word in the memo for your later
peruse. You can also look up a word online by selecting the word or simply
place the caret under the word you want to look up. A TapBar button is also
included so that you can have access to CLex almost everywhere at any time.
You can get the engine on my homepage or from Info-Mac.

Enjoy!!
