Academic Room Hindi Dictionary is a premium Hindi to English dictionary app developed in the Harvard Innovation Lab.

Its massive database provides over 350,000 definitions. The dictionary is designed with students and scholars in mind, to help them translate words and idioms from modern Hindi, Urdu, Khariboli, Brajbhasha and Avadhi. All words can be searched using a Hindi (Devanagari) keyboard. The present database continues to grow as more words are continually added.

Existing apps on the market are, unfortunately, based on English-Hindi dictionaries and, therefore, provide only one word English translations. Such dictionaries are inadequate for scholarly work, which requires translations that are more nuanced and attentive to multiple contexts and gramatical forms. This significant issue required the creation the present dictionary, which provides highly reliable definitions for those engaging in the literary study of Hindi.

Used to love the app...

I used to have an iPhone, and this dictionary was extremely helpful. The etymology entries were very convenient for my work too. I am disappointed that the app is not compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - I will be happy to purchase this app again when it is available for my device. Please work on making this handy app universal to all smartphones!
