Kannada -English Dictionary

I was looking for a dictionary from Kannada -English while I was earlier trying to translate Sri Harikathamruta  Sara. I finally found it. I hope this helps the many visitors who wish to translate from both these languages and many times face a tough time really getting the correct work.

Attached below is the link for the PDF and also online version. All credit to the website which scanned and uploaded the same, and also to the author of this Dictionary.

    Hi! Can someone tell me what the meaning of ಕಾಜಾಣ is? I know its a bird, but whats it called in English? I tried looking in the online dictionary, but since its ‘ka’, it is taking a lot of time.

    To the extent I remember (I’d looked it up when we studied kannaDavE satya in 9th), it was given to be “ondu jAtiya pakShi” (not that that answers your question). I somehow think though that it is perhaps a myna, because the poem had kAjANake giLikOgileyimpige, and I can’t think of another bird that makes melodious chirps.
