Have you ever tried to discuss your favorite film in a hostel abroad? Movie title translations are amazingly creative and often have little to do with the original wording. Enter MovieDict, your portable dictionary for thousands of popular movie titles. It even works offline!

MovieDict includes a database of over 44,000 entries with a focus on the English, German, French, Russian, Japanese and (various) Chinese names.

As a bonus for Chinese language learners, MovieDict lets you look up any Chinese characters in the popular dictionary app ‘Pleco’ if it is installed on your device – simply click the 魚 button next to a Chinese movie title.
