It's ok. Words and definitions so far are ok. What annoys me, is that to change the tranlsating direction (DE -> EN, EN->DE) you have to right-click and then select the change direction button on the bottom... It should always be visible! Also there's no stepping back through exactly what you clicked on, you have go go through the History - which you have to also right-click to get to. Annoying! Glad I didn't pay for it, and definitely not $11.99!

It doesn't have the depth of some dictionaries, and it'll only go word by word, and there's only English --> German as far as I can tell (no German --> English). But it's a good free dictionary for what it does.
