New products offer increased speed and functionality for dictionary users of all stripes. Available for English (definitions & synonyms) as well as in over a dozen language pairs (French-English, Spanish-English, Portuguese-English, German-English, and more.)

Minneapolis, September 14th: Ultralingua announced today the release of version 6 in its line of Ultralingua dictionaries, setting a new standard for electronic language resources.

“Ultralingua has long provided users with quality language tools. Our new version 6 offers significant increases in speed and functionality. We automatically detect the forms of words, and we even decipher misspellings made by the user,” reported Bill Upham, Ultralingua spokesperson. “Moreover, the new, sleek interface makes using Ultralingua on any platform a real pleasure.”

In addition to their extensive databases of definitions and translations, Ultralingua dictionaries include powerful verb conjugators, number-to-text converters, and extensive language references (such as full grammar manuals for several languages). Maintaining their commitment to multiple platforms, the new version is now available for Macintosh, Windows, Palm OS, and Windows Mobile. Macintosh and Windows versions offer powerful interaction with other applications, allowing users to click on a word in nearly any other application, thereby triggering a pop-up window displaying the translation or definition. Version 6 is currently available only on Ultralingua’s web site, at www.ultralingua.com.

In additional to its flagship dictionary series, Ultralingua offers a line of spelling and grammar checkers (under the brand Grammatica), and recently launched a line of light dictionaries known as Accio (www.acciodictionary.com) — which includes a dictionary for the iPod, complete with a talking phrasebook.
