Paragon Software Group makes America’s leading dictionary even more accessible

IRVING, Calif. – September, 2008 - Paragon Software Group, the world’s leading software developer and content provider for mobile devices and desktop PCs, has launched Merriam-Webster's Collegiate® Dictionary, Eleventh Edition, the best-selling college-level desk dictionary available on the market for iPhone and iPod touch. The most authoritative and comprehensive American English dictionary content and Paragon’s advanced Slovoed engine have been combined to bring premium dictionary content to iPhone users directly on the mobile device screen. Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary for iPhone is now available on the App Store at http://www.apple.com/iphone/appstore/.

The best-selling Collegiate Dictionary was tailor-made for the special characteristics and unique features of the iPhone. Merriam-Webster’s database contains 225,000 entries, including more than 10,000 new words and definitions, which can be accessed anywhere, any time, without Internet connection or additional charges.

Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate® Dictionary features an easy-to-use, single-click application to access definitions instantly. The Slovoed engine compresses the dictionary content to a minimum of memory space while allowing the user to perform multiple learning, word reference and translation functions as quickly as possible, and to customize content by adding new translations and meanings. The “History” feature shows the last 15 translated words, and the “Cross-Lookup” feature is an easy check of language comprehension.
