SyvumClickTM for Internet Explorer

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  1. How does SyvumClickTM work?
    Once you have installed and activated SyvumClickTM, you can select (mark/highlight) any word in any page you are viewing in your Internet Explorer to immediately look it up on an online resource such as a dictionary, thesaurus, search engine or translation service. On Windows, you can double-click any word to mark it. You can also select multiple word text strings for lookup. To perform lookups on multiple word selections, press Control-J after you select the lookup text. This feature is extremely useful for looking up meanings of words, or to translate complete sentences from one language to another.

  3. How do I activate SyvumClickTM?
    After you have installed SyvumClickTM, you need to close your Internet Explorer (close all open windows of Internet Explorer), and restart it.

When you have set the option to manual lookup, you simply need to press Ctrl-J to perform the lookup. These settings can be changed by editing your SyvumClickTM options.

  6. What are the options for displaying the results?
