The first release provides users with access to 58 languages, including English to/from Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Azeri, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Dutch, Estonian, Farsi, French, Finnish, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Serbian, Slovak, Swedish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese, on-the-go and hassle free with no need for an internet connection.

"We wanted to extend our product line over to Android users and make our high-end dictionaries and translators more affordable than before," mentions David Lubinitsky, CEO of Ectaco Inc. "The success of our translators allowed us to split programs individually, so users all over the world can take advantage of our one of a kind portable language learning applications."

The built-in speech recognition module allows users to say a word they're looking for in either language and have it found instantly instead of typing or scrolling. An additional Ectaco/C-Pen Bundle Pack is available on the official Ectaco site which includes 5, 9, 13 or 20 language dictionaries with a Bluetooth C-Pen pen scanner so users can scan text in any language and get an instant translation on the screen of their Android device. This is the world's first peripheral add-on text scanner for Android.
