LingvoSoft Talking Dictionary 2008 English <<0>> Persian for Windows is one portion of a whole language learning and translation tool for the computer. That whole tool we are making reference to is the LingvoSoft Dictionary 2008. Each portion works with two languages at a time, although if you wish you can acquire the whole tool. When the dictionary is installed on your desktop or laptop PC it translates words from one language to the other in the direction you choose.

This great feature is available on the toolbar located on the top of the window so it won’t take time or effort to get the pronunciation at any time. The trial version, available to download for free from the developer’s site on Internet, comes with no time-to-use limitation. If you are asking yourself what’s the deal, here’s the answer. The trial has a functional limitation. The amount of words available to translate and hear is restricted to the 10% of the full database.
