OK...In Marvin:

- Select settings (top left), from your library page.
- Select EPUB book settings
- scroll down to the Text selection menu and select Manage
- Select Define
- enter the desired URL scheme...you can even test it on that page.


As you mentioned, both apps need to allow it, and I can't help with the Dictionary.com app - I'm unfamiliar with it. However, you may be able to go to their website - if that's available??

Hope that helps!

edit: Also, there are some presets available at the bottom that can get you pointed in the right direction!!
I will add my 2 cents. I use a very good free dictionary wordweb
It can be reached via this command wordweb://{text}

That is get the wordweb app from appstore and enter the URL command wordweb://{text} as described by Turtle91.

A few cents more:
if you go to to the dictionary.com web page and search for horse
Then the address line in the browser will look like this:

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/horse?s=t
If you now enter the following command in Marvin:

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/{text}?s=t

Then you will see the translation in the Safari browser.

Also note the Ok in the upper left corner in the browser. Tap it to return to Marvin.

There were requests since the days of Marvin 1 that never got implemented...
Yup - Kris (the developer) didn't want to take Marvin in that direction...if you disagree then write your own app.

And, how exactly does this help the OP with his question?
