    Hello All
    Can any one recommend an English Dictionary to down load to Windows 8. Being a free down load would help too of course. arram.

    Hey Arram, Im not sure if youre actually looking for a dictionary, encyclopedia, or translator but you can find them here.
    Theyre free and you can try them out then uninstall them if you dont like them..

    Metro >> Store >> Books and Reference >> TOP FREE >>

    Hi there

    I assume you want a "Standard" type dictionary.

    plenty of Free e-books on the gutenburg site

    Free ebooks - Project Gutenberg

    This might be what you are looking for - if you have an e-reader you can load it on to that too -- and also a smart phone via an e-reader app(free).

    http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/247

    Download Calibre as well -- great e-book management and conversion system (and you can remove any DRM too via a plugin)

    calibre - Download for Windows

    How to Add a Kindle DRM-Removal Plugin to calibre

    cheers
