Academic Room Hindi Dictionary is a premium Hindi to English dictionary app developed in the Harvard Innovation Lab.

Its massive database provides over 350,000 definitions. The dictionary is designed with students and scholars in mind, to help them translate words and idioms from modern Hindi, Urdu, Khariboli, Brajbhasha and Avadhi. All words can be searched using a Hindi (Devanagari) keyboard. The present database continues to grow as more words are continually added.

Existing apps on the market are, unfortunately, based on English-Hindi dictionaries and, therefore, provide only one word English translations. Such dictionaries are inadequate for scholarly work, which requires translations that are more nuanced and attentive to multiple contexts and gramatical forms. This significant issue required the creation the present dictionary, which provides highly reliable definitions for those engaging in the literary study of Hindi.

Best Hindi-English Dictionary


I have been looking for a decent Hindi-English dictionary for a long time. This one, developed in the Harvard Innovation Lab, exceeds all expectations. The user interface is simple with search using Devanagari. You can type half words and all matching words appear in the search results. The dictionary saves the words that are favorited and a history of searches, in case you want to go back to them. Highly recommended for anyone serious about learning Hindi.
