Is there a TibetanEnglish dictionary searchable using Tibetan glyphs?

Thanks!

Excellent, free app, if u have an i-device. If not, might be worth getting an ipod-touch to use this app!

If you have an iPhone/iPod Touch, then this is a fantastic free app: http://digitaltibetan.org/index.php/Tib ... iPod_touch

I am thanks and that is close to what I need but not 100% there. So for example using the Tibetan Machine Uni glyph set it thew an illegal character error. Well the character isn't illegal. So I'll looking for at least a searchable Tibetan/English/German or other western language dictionary that has it's own built in keyboard so an error like this can't happen (of course it's possible that there is an error in the sadhana but then the error message should be different and it should recover nicely).

AH! They have some email verification process and I need to wait a bit. So all is not lost!
