Google Book Search Adds Contextual Search, Define & Translate
Now within Google eBooks you can search, define and translate words within the book using the click of your mouse.
Using the Google eBooks Web Reader, which works in all modern browsers, you can highlight words with your mouse and select from a contextual menu to Define, Translate, Search Book, Search Google and Search Wikipedia.
A pretty useful tool when trying to find where certain words were used elsewhere in the book, plus the obvious look up features for definitions and translation.
Give it a try on Vanessa Fox’s book, Marketing in the Age of Google and then click on “View Sample” and the Google eBooks Web Reader will open up.
