As you might know, the Define option in the iPhone text selector pop up gives you dictionary definitions for most common words. It's convenient because it can be accessed in only a couple of taps. If you're using more than just the English language on your iOS device, you'll be happy to know that the same can be done in a multitude of languages as well. Setting up foreign language dictionaries on your iOS device is pretty straightforward. To save space Apple keeps additional dictionaries offline but you can easily add and remove additional dictionaries any time you want. That way you can have the languages you want right where you want them.
Note that you can tap on words you type or words you come across in your internet browser. This means you can't click words in apps such as Messages, Calendar, and third-party applications.
In this process, you will see a huge list of foreign language dictionaries, then simply scroll through the list and click the download button (cloud icon with an arrow pointing down) beside any extra dictionaries you want to download.
Note: Definitions aren't available for all languages, but the most common ones are here.
