The Program

Dictionary is a language translation and definition program for PalmOS and WinCE handheld computers. It is simple to use and very fast.

NEW - Dictionary now has a selection of English language definition dictionaries. These range in size from 770Kb up to 5.7Mb with 109,000 entries! You'll need some serious RAM in your Palm for that one!!

NEW - Dictionary now has support for expansion cards! Only VFS compatible cards are supported. This includes the Palm SD card, Sony Memory Stick, and Handera CF cards. You can use the Palm Install Tool to HotSync directly to the card and it is immediately accesible by Dictionary. If you have many modules loaded on your Palm at once this will save a lot of RAM since only the currently active module is loaded into RAM.

This program is Shareware. You can download it and try it before you decide to purchase. You only have to pay for the program - all language modules are FREE! Download and use as many as you need.

Make Your Own Modules

Download MakeDict - a FREE companion program (Windows 95,98/NT 4/ Win2000) for Dictionary. Now you can make dictionary databases of you own. Look in the help file of 'Dictionary' for documentation.

NEW - MakeDict can now winnow the entries in a module using a wordlist. This can be useful if you have a very large module and would like to make a smaller module that uses less RAM.

NEW - MakeDict can now import ergane export files! Check out their web site for free language modules.
