March 7, 2012
(Minneapolis, Minn.) Language software company Ultralingua is bringing a new product to the Mac App Store, Ultralingua Dictionary. Ultralingua Dictionary is a one-stop purchase for language learners in search of dictionaries and study tools. It is available exclusively in the Mac App Store.
Ultralingua Dictionary is the only language resource of its kind in the Mac App Store. With over 19 bilingual dictionary options inside a single app, multilingual language learners can access all their reference tools in a single interface.
Upon download, the user unlocks the first dictionary for free. Additional dictionaries can then be purchased at a lower price and downloaded all within the app. Ultralingua’s instruction video provides step-by-step details for customers downloading the app.
After choosing a dictionary, Ultralingua Dictionary has features tailored specifically to both Mac and language lovers. All of these fully developed tools combine to create the ultimate language reference suite:
- A bilingual dictionary with thousands of translations, phrases, and usage examples
- A references section complete with guidance for grammar, written correspondence, prepositions, verbs types, and more
- Entries include parts of speech, gender, and pronunciation information
- A verb conjugation tool provides conjugations for thousands of verbs in all standard tenses and forms
- The flashcard feature helps users create, organize, and edit flashcards
- A number translator instantly provides written forms of any number
Ultralingua decided to present all dictionaries through a single app to make finding, installing, and using translations dictionaries easier.
“Consolidating our products in the Mac App Store gives us the opportunity to deliver our dictionaries more smoothly,” Ultralingua’s Chief Technology Officer Jeff Ondich said. “We wanted to take the hassle out of using multiple dictionaries and updating multiple products. With our Mac App Store app, it all occurs in the same place.”
The app will assist travelers, language learners, and educators alike, whether on-the-go or in the classroom.
"For teaching graduate students to access French journal articles in their research, I have found no better resource than Ultralingua,” author and professor Dr. Robert L. Plummer, who requires the Ultralingua French-English dictionary for his Theological French class, said.
“The program is accurate, fast, intuitive, and affordable. Students who have tried other print or software French resources inevitably come to agree that Ultralingua is unsurpassed in design and usability.”
Pricing and availability: Ultralingua Dictionary 7.3 is available starting Wednesday, March 7 in the Mac App Store for $34.99. Additional dictionaries can be purchased within the app for $14.99-$24.99.
