Moscow, Russia – 5 September 2007 – Paragon Software Group, world famous software developer, and PONS GmbH, one of the leading language publishers in Europe, today announce an international collaboration on development and launch of PONS electronic dictionary line for all mobile platforms. One of the most popular dictionaries of the German-speaking world is now available as a valuable source of language knowledge on all mobile devices.

According the agreement, Paragon Software develops German-English, German-French, German-Spanish, German-Italian and German-Greek PONS dictionaries which are the mobile editions of famous PONS Wörterbuch für Schule und Studium Englisch, PONS Wörterbuch für Schule und Studium Spanisch, PONS Wörterbuch für Schule und Studium Französisch, PONS Wörterbuch für Schule und Studium Italienisch and PONS Kompaktwörterbuch Neugriechisch dictionaries. The application is based on powerful Slovoed engine and compatible with Symbian OS (S60 & UIQ), Windows Mobile (Pocket PC and Smartphone Editions), Palm OS, Java and Blackberry.

Paragon Software has been developing progressive technologies for on-line translation since 1997, when the first electronic dictionary Slovoed came out. By the time, Slovoed has earned the honor of being the best dictionaries for mobile devices in the opinion of both end-users and key vendors. Paragon Software collaborates closely with the world famous publishers such as Merriam-Webster Inc., Oxford University Press, Chambers Harrap Publishers, Van Dale Lexicografie bv, Larousse Editorial, S.L., etc. Thus, Paragon Software’s wide experience in the field of e-translation solutions for mobile devices now provides the highest level of technologies and fast time to market. To succeed in the competitive industry, Slovoed offers a broad range of unique features that haven’t been implemented by any of rivals. For example, with the low memory consumption technology, Slovoed gives access to the widest lexical bases for all mobile devices and provides instant access and precise translations. It can run either stand-alone or as a client-server application. Furthermore, Slovoed combines wide functionality, user-friendly interface and supports all mobile platforms.
