FREIBURG, Germany – October 7, 2008 - Paragon Software Group, the world’s leading software developer and content provider for mobile devices and desktop PCs, has launched The Talking English Dictionary for the iPhone and iPod touch. The most authoritative coverage of vocabulary in the English-speaking world is coupled with Paragon’s advanced Slovoed engine to bring premium dictionary content to iPhone users directly on the mobile device screen.

The Talking English Dictionary was tailor-made for the iPhone, with all special characteristics and unique features of the device in mind. The dictionary database contains more than 240,000 words, phrases and definitions in British English, and is the most up-to-date dictionary of its kind available on the market. No Internet connection is required – simply download once and use it without incurring any additional expenses. The “History” feature shows the last 15 translated words, and the “Cross-Lookup” feature is an easy check of language comprehension.
