Best Bangla Dictionary – Which One and Why?
There are lots of Bangla Dictionary available on market. I use Google Translate for my small tasks. However, I felt there was always need for a better offline Bangla Dictionary for a long time. For example, I published an article back in 2012 announcing that one was better than any other. Nevertheless, time has passed and I saw better alternatives. Though there were better alternatives, they didn’t have friendly UI or exclusive materials to write about. I found a great Bangla Dictionary which is small in size, has about 20000 Bangla words with Unicode translation. It’s a great dictionary all of the words are written in Unicode, you don’t find it often. Kudos to the developers!
