St. Petersburg, March 15, 2004. PROMT Company, the leading provider of machine translation technologies, announced today the release of new product @promt VER-Dict, electronic dictionary for PalmOS computers. @promt VER-Dict translates in English-German and German-English directions and has a vast dictionary with more than 393,000 entries and extensive grammar support.

A very well known problem: you are in a foreign country and suddenly and you are found yourself lost in the foreign words. Even though you might be able to speak the language a bit, you search uncomfortably for important words during conversation, signs and menus appear incomprehensible and the friendly policeman at your car window is insistent about something. But what? The new electronic dictionary for Palm PDA computers @promt VER-Dict has proven unbeatable in these types of situations because users can always have it with them. This means that the unique capabilities and the data basis of the desktop versions of @promt software can now also be used on a road or in a trip.

Compared to a "real" dictionary, @promt VER-Dict is easier to use and faster thanks to its machine translation process called PROMT XT (eXcellent Technology) developed in-house and on which all products from this manufacturer are based. Several versions of this translation software are available internationally and here in Germany, it is available for the translation directions as follows: English-German and German-English.

@promt VER-Dict translates in both directions and has a vast dictionary with more than 393,000 entries and extensive grammar support. Users can also create their own personal dictionaries. Translated terms or sentences are displayed via the clipboard. It is also possible to simultaneously translate while writing.

@promt VER-Dict requires 137 kB RAM of space (for the dictionary program) and is suitable for use on all Palm operating systems (3.5 and higher). If the unit has a slot for Flash cards, the program can also be saved there and used. @promt VER-Dict is available at a recommended retail price of EUR 29.95.

@promt translation programs have highly-awarded in computer magazines and have achieved outstanding test results, for example, in the c't magazine ("Best Product Tested"), in Chip ("The ideal program"), PC Welt or Localisation Focus ("Easy to use, with plenty of useful features").
