Paragon Software is bringing the popular PONS dictionaries to the users of Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch. A series of PONS dictionaries are about to hit the AppStore — including PONS Advanced English, PONS Advanced French and PONS Advanced Italian.
Paragon’s SlovoEd engine is running the show in the backend, making sure the PONS dictionaries don’t eat the space on your beloved device, while at the same time ensuring fast look-up speeds.
PONS dictionaries were tailor-made for the iPhone, keeping in mind all special characteristics and unique features of the device. The dictionary database is powered by PONS under the SlovoEd application engine and contains 117,171 entries, easily making it the best dictionary engine technology available on the market. No Internet connection is required simply download the dictionary once and use it on the iPhone/iPod Touch without any additional expenses. Audio modules contain nearly 40,000 live voice pronunciations prerecorded by native speakers, and having them directly on the iPhone helps to improve pronunciation and ease the mastery of a new language. The “History” feature shows the last 15 translated words, and the “Cross-Lookup” feature is an easy check of language comprehension.
The multilingual PONS dictionary series will be available for sale later in the summer for $24.99 (19.99 EUR).
