English Indonesian English Dictionary (Eng Indonesian Dic)
Looking to buy an English Indonesian 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 Indonesian dictionary suite (Eng Indonesian Dic.) is a full set of English Indonesian language software for multiple platforms. Each dictionary can be used to translate from English to Indonesian and from Indonesian 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 Indonesian and Indonesian Eng. The copy feature can be used for reverse lookups to display synonyms and to understand the broader use of the Indonesian word in the English language. Although the Eng Indonesian dict does not provide definitions or examples, the use of the translation software in this way provides you with a mechanism to better understand Indonesian words in the English context without the need for detailed definitions.
Laptop and Desktop versions for Windows, Apple Mac and Linux have a Indonesian learning mode, which uses flashcards to help you learn and memorize the Indonesian language. The learning or Indonesian teacher mode has 4 levels. In level one a word is selected from the 500 most commonly used English words and three Indonesian 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 Indonesian 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 Indonesian words for the correct English to Indonesian translation. The Indonesian teacher becomes more difficult in levels 3 and 4 when you are tested on your knowledge of the Indonesian language against the complete Eng Indonesian dic. Like level 1, level 3 offers three Indonesian word choices and level 4 five Indonesian word choices from the extensive English Indonesian lexicon.
The learning mode provides the same functionality from Indonesian words to English for levels 1 to 4. Indonesian 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.
