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