Bad news for Urdu and Hindi learners (especially Urdu, where there is a dearth of good Urdu-to-English resources).
Oxford Dictionaries has decided to shut down its dictionaries websites.
This is not a temporary, maintenance move, but a permanent one. They have decided to charge access to their database.

I liked the Urdu dictionary very much because it was concise and was normally on point with short or one-word definitions.
Also, it rendered the Urdu words with just the right amount of diacritics.

Anyway, tough life. :(

This also means that all "odfordictionary ..." links provided in this forum will be broken.
