This offline dictionary app can capture words directly from almost any program. It has two methods in order to capture a word in another program: mouse and keyboard.
The Sage is a so-called “one-click” dictionary.

The default key-click combination can be changed via the Mouse page in the Options dialog.
Using TheSage dictionary app, you can look up words directly from other programs via the keyboard shortcuts. This is accomplished by selecting the relevant word in the appropriate program and by pressing its hotkey. TheSage will then read the word and carry out a lookup automatically. By default, TheSage’s hotkey is Ctrl + Shift + A but users can choose any combination of keys they want to use through the Hotkey page in the Options dialog.
