Ascendo releases four language dictionaries for Windows Phone 8
Windows Phone developer Ascendo has released four language dictionaries for our Windows Phone 8 devices. The dictionaries include Spanish, German, Italian and French.
Each dictionary includes a keyword search field to allow you to look up your words. Find the word you need and you can pull up the translation, conjugations, and an audio sampling of the word.
The dictionaries pull from a offline database, that varies from 70-90,000 entries depending on the language, with the free versions. You can make an in-app purchase to extend the dictionary entries (takes things into the hundreds of thousands) and online lookup for words not in the offline database.
The only downside to the dictionary is that the audio pronunciation doesn't cover the translated word. Still, these dictionaries provide a handy resource when you're trying to look up foreign words and their use.
You can find the free versions of Ascendo's language dictionaries by following the Windows Store links below or scan the QR tags. Each version is free and you can purchase the extended versions within the app ($4.99).
