News / Others Microsoft Launches Bing Dictionary for Windows Phone
Microsoft has launched a Bing Dictionary app on Windows Phone. The Bing dictionary has both local as well as online dictionary look up feature and comes with helpful options like smart index, search suggestions etc. Microsoft currently offers English as well as Chinese language support. Since the phone is usually connected with the mobile Internet, the app offers additional feature of Machine Translation between English and Chinese. When you look up a word it also feeds you the definitions in Chinese until you change the language manually each time. It is a great looking app that works really well but it is mislabeled.

Features: • Local/Online dictionary: Local dictionary contains 100,000 most-frequently-used English and Chinese words. Online dictionary provides more words, sentences and voice.
• Smart Index: Creative Smart Index matches incomplete words and their inflections. Quick-definition is also provided for convenience. Try to input ”better”?
• Click-to-Lookup: Don’t like keyboard on phone? Try two clicks to start a new search: first click a word in definitions or sentences, then click the search button.
• Search Suggestion: uncertain of spelling? Online dictionary provides search candidates of similar spelling or pronunciation to your input.
• Machine Translate: online dictionary mode supports machine translation. Input a long sentence to try the latest Microsoft translation engine between Chinese and English.
• Themes and Fonts: UI themes, Chinese or English user interface, and different font sizes for comfortable reading experience.
• Search history: save your history for recent queries, easily review and traffic-saving.
