using multiple languages, and needs an occasional reminder about the
meaning of a certain word could suggest a Linux application I could set

The languages I use most frequently are English, Hebrew, French and
German. Since, for some reason, the Gnome keyboard indicator limits me
to four, that is the list of primary need. If someone knows how to add
more keyboards to the indicator, one can throw in Arabic and Chinese
(Mainland and/or old style). I know Chinese input is more difficult than
Thanks in advance,
