DALLAS (August 16, 2004) - - Olympic athletes and fans from all over the
world are converging on Athens for the start of the 2004 Summer Olympiad. As if
world class competition and dealing with hordes of people were not grueling
enough, overcoming language hurdles will be one of the toughest challenges faced
over the next couple of weeks. To help ease the language barrier faced by
English, German, Spanish, French and Italian athletes and fans, Beiks LLC
announces the launch of the company’s first Greek Talking Phrasebook for Palm OS
Beiks LLC, the world leader in reference and language titles for mobile
devices, has enabled anyone with a Palm OS PDA or smartphone (such as the
popular Treo 600) to quickly look up commonly used words or phrases in their
native language and hear the phrase verbally stated in Greek.
This particular talking phrasebook is the first to leverage Beiks’ new
dictionary engine, allowing users to install the phrasebook without requiring a
localization toolkit—a savings of US$20 to $40.
Beiks’ collection of dictionaries is the largest assortment of international
dictionaries and phrasebooks available for mobile devices. International
travelers can pick from among a large assortment of phrasebooks and dictionaries
for most commonly used languages.
All talking phrasebooks are available at
for US$19.95. The
list of available talking phrasebooks for Palm OS devices can be found at
http://www.beiks.com/palmzonebg/pb/. An assortment of talking phrasebooks are
also available for Pocket PC and Windows Mobile Smartphone devices. The Greek
talking phrasebook for Pocket PC will be launched in approximately 30 days.
