Mac OSX 10.5 (Leopard) Built in Japanese Dictionary

Though I seriously doubt it can compare to the raw power of an electronic dictionary, or even WWWJDIC, I wanted to remind Apple users that Leopard's Dictionary application includes some down and dirty, efficient Japanese-Japanese and Japanese-English dictionaries. These are especially nice if you prefer sleek Cocoa interfaces to clunkier web apps.

It's very useful. Though when I first found out there should be such a dictionary, it took me quite a while before I found out where to find it. I had gotten really annoyed at my own lack of skills to find it.

So anyone else not being able to find it, just open up de dictionary application, and turn the Japanese dictionaries on in the preference menu. Though I am probably the only idiot not being able to find it at once. :roll:
