Minneapolis (PRWEB) April 24, 2006
Ultralingua announced today the release of the new Accio Dictionary for iPod, a significant innovation in dictionary software.
“Ultralingua is proud to announce this exciting innovation in language learning reference software. Now users will be able to get common translations when traveling, and even listen to translations of common phrases recorded by native speakers,” said Chad Johnson, Ultralingua General Manager. “The Accio iPod dictionary includes up to 8,000 indexed translations with the vocabulary you need for everyday usage and traveling."
In addition to the database of common translations, Accio dictionaries for the iPod also include verb conjugation tables for the most commonly used verbs. And in a new twist, the dictionaries include audio files varied by region; for example, customers can chose between European or Latin American dialects in Spanish and Portuguese. Accio dictionaries are available for use with iPods that sync with Macintosh or Windows computers.
The Accio Dictionary for iPod is part of a new brand of dictionaries from Ultralingua for those users who need a simpler, more affordable dictionary for use in reading on their computer or while traveling with their iPod. Accio dictionaries will offer instant access to translations and definitions of the most commonly used words, but will be "lighter" and will have fewer features than standard Ultralingua dictionaries. The company plans releases of versions for Macintosh, Windows, Palm OS, and Windows Mobile later this year.
