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