Minneapolis, MN (PressExposure) November 10, 2008 -- Ultralingua announced today the release of Collins branded dictionaries.
Building on the success of its own dictionaries for the iPhone and the iPod touch, Ultralingua has now collaborated with Collins Dictionaries (UK) to bring world-class translation tools to its users. The new line, sold in Appleâs iTunes store, harnesses Ultralinguaâs popular interface and search features, making the complex translation of words and phrases both simple and fast.
Collins Dictionaries, a subsidiary of HarperCollins, has long been recognized as the gold standard for bi-lingual dictionary content, offering highly enriched definitions and contextual indicators. These new tools address the needs of the most demanding users in academics, translation, business and other fields dependent on the highest quality. By harnessing the power of Collins Dictionaries, Ultralingua dictionary software makes language translation and word definitions incredibly easy. Look up any word, anytime, anywhere with your Ultralingua iPod dictionary or Ultralingua iPhone dictionary.
Best of all, Ultralingua technology will automatically recognize inflected words (conjugated verbs, irregular plurals), and will even allow users to conjugate verbs in all their tenses. Each dictionary also includes a number-to-text converter, allowing users to type in a number and see how that number is expressed in words in a given language.
This release also includes a step forward in the Ultralingua interface, including improved performance and stability, an integrated history and back/forward buttons. These improvements are included in all Collins dictionaries, as well as in Ultralinguaâs standard iPhone and iPod touch products.
Collins dictionaries by Ultralingua are found in the References section of the iTunes Apps store. Available titles include: English Definitions, French-English Dictionary, German-English Dictionary, Spanish-English Dictionary, Italian-English Dictionary, and Portuguese-English Dictionary. Each title costs $24.95. Ultralingua Dictionaries make the perfect gift for anyone looking to translate foreign languages or bring a multi-lingual dictionary with them when they travel. Traditional dictionary users will love the speed and ease with which they can look-up word definitions and grammatical uses.
