[prMac.com] Fremont, California - Penpower Inc., a California-based pioneer in the development of innovative and best-selling business productivity software, has announced the release of version 2.1 of its popular on-the-go translation app, Worldictionary for iPhone. Committed to providing communications solutions that lessen the gap between man and technology, Penpower designed Worldictionary 2.1 to empower users with greater ease and speed in translating words from 21 languages into more than 50 others.
The developer of the best-selling WorldCard Mobile, a wildly popular app which allows users to scan business cards and import their information into contact lists, Penpower designed Worldictionary for similar ease and convenience. Simply point the viewfinder of an iPhone camera, no need to click, at any printed word in Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, English, Japanese, French, Germany, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Finnish, Danish, Norwegian, Polish, Hungarian, Russian, Czech, Slovak, Korean or Romanian, and Worldictionary will offer an instant translation.
Worldictionary, which has been featured in various sections in the iTunes App Store, offers the ability to search Google, YouTube and Wikipedia for more comprehensive translation information. To better grasp the usage of a particular word, for instance, a photo of the text can be selected and highlighted and Worldictionary will provide etymology, phonetics, synonyms and other useful information.
"Worldictionary was good before, and now it's even better and a more valuable tool for those involved in the global marketplace and, really, just about anyone else," said Penpower Vice President DP Deng. "We have improved the function of the manual, typing mode by adding an auto-fill word predictor and we have, importantly, made it possible to translate multi-word phrases, as well. Worldictionary 2.1 is quite simply, and without a doubt, a crucial app for anyone whose livelihood or interests require the need to communicate, seamlessly and effectively, without global language barriers."
Worldictionary 2.1 features a user manual update and includes several new language recognition options, including Russian, Hungarian, Polish, Czech, Romanian and Slovakian and also comes with an anti-shake function to ensure better image quality.
