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