English Czech English Dictionary (Eng Czech Dic)
Looking to buy an English Czech Dictionary paperback or phrase book? Have you considered using a translation “app” on your mobile phone, PDA or games console, which uses the same space as a ringtone, is easy to install and is faster to reference than a book?
The English Czech dictionary suite (Eng Czech Dic.) is a full set of English Czech language software for multiple platforms. Each dictionary can be used to translate from English to Czech and from Czech to English.
Smartphones supporting Java (Symbian, S60, Windows mobile, Pocket PC, Android)
Games consoles (PSP, NDS, GP2X)
Windows, Mac, Linux, Solaris (desktops and laptops)
Jailbroken iPhone and iTouch (no support given)
Palm (Palms running Windows Mobile should use the J2ME – Mobile Phone version
All versions provide word translations Eng Czech and Czech Eng. The copy feature can be used for reverse lookups to display synonyms and to understand the broader use of the Czech word in the English language. Although the Eng Czech dict does not provide definitions or examples, the use of the translation software in this way provides you with a mechanism to better understand Czech words in the English context without the need for detailed definitions.
Laptop and Desktop versions for Windows, Apple Mac and Linux have a Czech learning mode, which uses flashcards to help you learn and memorize the Czech language. The learning or Czech teacher mode has 4 levels. In level one a word is selected from the 500 most commonly used English words and three Czech words are displayed for you to make your choice. If the correct word is selected points are awarded, otherwise a life is lost. The correct answer is always displayed after a Czech word is selected. Points are accumulated until 10 lives are lost. The second level of the game still tests against the 500 most commonly used English words, but offers a choice from five Czech words for the correct English to Czech translation. The Czech teacher becomes more difficult in levels 3 and 4 when you are tested on your knowledge of the Czech language against the complete Eng Czech dic. Like level 1, level 3 offers three Czech word choices and level 4 five Czech word choices from the extensive English Czech lexicon.
The learning mode provides the same functionality from Czech words to English for levels 1 to 4. Czech words are displayed for you to choose an English translation. The same scoring and lives applies as for English.
A paperless option makes sense. It is kinder to the environment, its faster and it works on a device you already own.
