THE BEST BILINGUAL REFERENCE — With 2.7 million translations, pronunciation in 4 accents, powerful search, and access from within your apps. 30-day free trial!

Antidote Mobile - Bilingual offers the best of both worlds: excellent dictionaries and guides in both English and French, and plentiful translations between the two languages.

Antidote Mobile provides rich definitions, abundant synonyms, massive word combinations and much more, in an elegant and efficient interface. Use powerful search engines to find rhymes, anagrams, and other links between words, even with wildcards. Listen to words in all their forms in 4 accents. Display 2.7 million translations of words and expressions, or hide them to work in a single language.

From spelling to style, Antidote’s guides cover all aspects of writing. Over 500 articles in English and 900 in French are organized in a clear tree structure with fast search and links between articles from one language to the other.

In Discovery Mode, ask for rare words, famous people or Heritage sites, and Antidote will display them in a random sequence. Create word lists that you can review and share with friends or students. Test your lexical knowledge with the game mode: guess the name of a country, city, person and more based on their definitions, and post your results on social media.

Antidote Mobile doesn’t need an Internet connection†. It is offered as a one-year renewable subscription, either by itself or with an Antidote+ package (Druide account required).
