English Hebrew English Dictionary (Eng Hebrew Dic)
Looking to buy an English Hebrew 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 Hebrew dictionary suite (Eng Hebrew Dic.) is a full set of English Hebrew language software for multiple platforms. Each dictionary can be used to translate from English to Hebrew and from Hebrew 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
Versions for mobile phones and other mobile devices provide word translations Eng Hebrew displaying translations in phonetic Hebrew (romanised Hebrew). The Hebrew Eng dic translates from phonetic Hebrew to English and by using the copy feature this can be particularly useful for reverse lookups for synonyms and to understand the broader use of the Hebrew word in the English language. Although the Eng Hebrew dict does not provide definitions or examples, the use of the translation software in this way provides you with a mechanism to better understand Hebrew words in the English context without the need for detailed definitions.
Laptop and Desktop versions for Windows, Apple Mac and Linux of the English Hebrew language dictionary software display Hebrew characters as well as phonetic Hebrew when translating words from English to Hebrew. The copy feature is equally useful in helping to understand and communicate between English and Hebrew. This version can also translate from Hebrew characters to English as well as from phonetic Hebrew (romanised Hebrew) to English.
Windows, Apple Mac and Linux versions also provide a Hebrew learning mode, which uses flashcards to help you learn and memorize the Hebrew language. The learning or Hebrew teacher mode has 4 levels. In level one a word is selected from the 500 most commonly used English words and three Hebrew 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 Hebrew 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 Hebrew words for the correct English to Hebrew translation. The Hebrew teacher becomes more difficult in levels 3 and 4 when you are tested on your knowledge of the Hebrew language against the complete Eng Hebrew dic. Like level 1, level 3 offers three Hebrew word choices and level 4 five Hebrew word choices from the extensive English Hebrew lexicon.
The learning mode provides the same functionality from Hebrew words to English for levels 1 to 4. Hebrew words are displayed in Hebrew characters, but after an English translation choice is made the phonetic Hebrew (romanised Hebrew) is also displayed whether the selection is right or wrong. This is very helpful for Hebrew language students who are learning to read Hebrew.
A paperless option makes sense. It is kinder to the environment, its faster and it works on a device you already own.
