My wife would like Spanish software which has dictionary, synonyms, antonyms and a translator all combined. Which of your software do you recommend? And what portable handheld do you suggest for such a software?
Dear Mr. Alvarez,
As far as software, you may see our English <-> Spanish Dictionaries, FlashCards and PhraseBooks for Palm, Pocket PC or Smartphones. The choice of handheld is totally up to you. However, if you want a real portable language assistant dedicated to English and Spanish, our suggestion is the ES-X5 or the ES400T electronic dictionaries.
Could you please send information to me as to your prices for translators as my wife is Thai and she wants to learn English.
Dear Mr. Perrott,
We would rather recommend you the CYBERDICT V. This is one of the best talking Thai <-> English <-> Thai dictionaries with advanced multilingual voice synthesis. It affords spoken language practice and provides a wide selection of English phrases and idioms. And since it is a both ways dictionary, perhaps you will be able to understand her better as well.
Would like to know more about this product before I part with my "hard earned cash"
Is it in English/Russian & Russian/English.
Does voice activated meen if you say a word in English will it repeat it in russian & vice/versa.
My wife (Russian) would like to communicate better here... Is this the best option for her.
What is your return policy if it does not do the job for what we intend.
Regards Graham Roylett

I am interested in the above product as I am about to start working in Spain in a senior management position. I am an English graduate and native born English speaker and therefore do not require help learning English. I am fluent in Spanish however I would be buying this as an aid to further develop my commercial and technical Spanish skills and not my English skills.
Your detailed description of this product rather indicated to me that it's primary educational and translational functions are to assist native Spanish speakers to improve their English rather than for English speakers to improve their Spanish skills.
Can you please clarify this point, and with my indicated need in mind, advise whether this would be the most suitable product for my needs or whether you would recommend an alternate model?

I am studying Mandarin Chinese & would like to buy one of your handheld electronic dictionaries. I am looking at the models Besta CD-828 and the Besta CD-608, however, I have the following queries:
do both models have the function whereby you can search the meaning of a Chinese character by writing into onto the screen?
are the models able to display both long form and short form Chinese characters?
can I buy them from any stores in London or do I need to purchase them from your website?
I would be grateful if you could get back to me asap.
Only Besta CD-828 has the function that lets you find the meaning of a Chinese character by writing it on the screen.
I would like to know about your best, most comprehensive French-English-French electronic dictionary which has speech synthesis in French (not necessarily in English too, though if it does that it isn't a problem).

I need to know the price also, and whether you can deliver to me here in France.
Thank you for your letter.
