more useful tools

I put four new sites in the tools section on the sidebar

For pronunciation there was already forvo, which is nice because people all around the world add to it (you can to), but I added howjsay because I've found it has more of the words I'm looking for (such as amortize). It has a lovely British accent in English.

For strange expression and idioms in English try what does that mean?
for example: "if wishes were horses this beggar would ride"

For mysterious acronyms try this finder

and someone worked to make google translator prettier and easier to use as an online bilingual (or lotsa lingual at once if you like) dictionary - shame they picked the horrible name nice translator
