Minneapolis (PRWEB) June 15, 2006
Ultralingua announced today the release of the new Accio Dictionary for Mac and Windows, a significant innovation in dictionary software.
“Now users will be able to get translations and definitions quickly when reading on a computer, with one simple click,” said Chad Johnson, Ultralingua General Manager. “Users simply point at a word in nearly any application or text window and when they click a ‘hot key,’ a window pops up with translations and definitions from our extensive language databases. The dictionaries even automatically recognize and translate conjugated and irregular word forms.”
The Accio Dictionary for Macintosh and Windows 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. The Accio Dictionary includes up to 80,000 indexed translations, along with idiomatic expressions, slang, and indications of usage. The Accio Dictionaries feature all of the vocabulary needed for everyday usage and traveling, but are lighter and have fewer features than standard Ultralingua dictionaries. The company has recently released Accio Dictionaries for the iPod complete with talking phrasebooks, and plans releases of versions for Palm OS and Windows Mobile later this year.
