provides an English-Chinese, Chinese-English two-way dictionary.
For each entry in the English-Chinese section, the part of
speech, detailed explanation, DK and KK phonetic symbols,
antonyms and synonyms, irregular paradigm (plural form, past
tense, past participle, comparative degree and superlative
degree) are provided to meet varying demands for English language
learning. For each entry in the Chinese-English section, detailed
explanation in English is also provided for word query.
Note: The software, which supports both traditional
and simplified Chinese, is available in Taiwan Province, Singapore
and Hong Kong SAR.
Written in ANSI C language, the dictionary engine fits all
platforms including Symbian, Palm, Linux, Pocket PC and Smart
phone without any need for a system call, as long as a particular
platform provides C language translator-editor. It can cope
with disparities among different CPU types, e.g. Big Endian
versus Little Endian, and handle byte alignment. It also provides
detailed dictionary engine API files and example citing programs
(source code included). Given mobile phone development SDKs
from client manufacturers, we are able to quickly integrate
the interface and the engine and create a ready dictionary
Capability: The dictionary engine works smoothly on a
CPU at clock frequency of 10 MHz or higher, responding in
less than 0.1 seconds with no more than 30 KB memory occupation.
It supports 31 terminological dictionaries.
Check: This function is able to restore a word to the
common form (from its plural form, past tense, past participle,
comparative degree or superlative degree), and to correct
spelling errors such as extra letters, missing letters, misused
letters, providing up to three closest alternative words for
you to choose from.
Vocabulary Building: This function has been added to your
dictionary, with which you may choose to display an English
word, its Chinese meaning, or both, and set a pace for words
to rotate on screen.
Voice Pronunciation: Voice data consume less than 1 MB
memory space (around 70,000 single words) with 16-k voice
sampling integrated in WAV format. The dictionary engine is
not able to generate voice signals without these voice data.
Themes of Terminological Word Pools: Telecommunications,
motion pictures, law, environment, economics and trade, computer
science, military, travel, neology, business, biology, petroleum,
computer network, psychology, mobile, medicine and warfare.
