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