"Over 40 million people speak Thai, and it is my hope that this dictionary will make communication between Thai speakers and English speakers easier than ever before," continues Mr. Ahsan. "So it was important for us to help users look up words quickly without having to transliterate them into Latin [English] characters first."
Thai Dictionary's core translation function works offline. But when the user's device is online, several extra features become available, such as an online scoring system which helps students earn Achievements for using app features, plus a vocabulary Leaderboard which rewards the most effective students.
"Thai Dictionary was designed for both students and travelers. You can use it as a phrase book for a short trip, or you can use it to learn a language for life. And, at only $4.99 in the App Store, it's cheaper than either a paperback phrase book or even the simplest study guide. A free version with in-app purchase options is also available," said Mr. Ahsan.
