Latin is one of the few root languages used for forming English, ancient Greek being another. With it's strict grammar and thousands of words, it is actually quite helpful in understanding much more about English.

William Whitaker's Words is a free, instantaneous and thorough Latin translation tool for students and experts alike. A downloadable version also exists if you wish to have it permanently on your computer, and it provides a great amount of case, declensions and variations for possible definitions of any word you choose to input. I've been using it for years as a Classics student and it's a very handy tool to supplement a print dictionary!
