I have just installed stock Ubuntu in German so I can practice the language, but every once in a while I encounter some word I'm not familiar with. Currently, I open a browser and search for a translation or definition of the word in order to understand what the OS is trying to tell me, but I'm looking for a cleverer and faster solution.

Is there any way I can get the Dash to quickly give me the definition of a word in German and/or its English translation? A one-command terminal solution would also be an improvement from my current method.
