ABBYY, provider of document recognition, capture, and linguistic technologies and services, is now partnering with Ediciones Larousse S.A. de C.V., dictionaries and reference content publisher in Mexico, to provide iOS users in the Americas with four Spanish dictionary applications.

The four dictionaries - Larousse Spanish Basic Dictionary, Dictionary of Synonyms and Antonyms, Spanish Verb Conjugation Dictionary and Dictionary of Biographies offer Larousse content, convenient user interface, and functionality of ABBYY Lingvo for iOS. The applications provide iOS users with vocabulary, searchable entries and word usage examples. Larousse Spanish Basic Dictionary provides definitions in Spanish for words, collocations and idioms. The Dictionary of Synonyms and Antonyms offers thesaurus containing Latin America’s local terms. The Spanish Verb Conjugation Dictionary offers about 5 000 common Spanish verbs with inflected forms for all tenses and persons. With the Dictionary of Biographies, iOS consumers have access to illustrated entries about life and works of historical figures of Mexico and the whole world.

Each application supports morphology, and allows iOS users to type a word in any grammar form to find a relevant entry or near-matches. They can copy an unfamiliar word into the clipboard and look up an entry with the start of the program, without typing. Larousse Spanish Basic Dictionary and Dictionary of Synonyms and Antonyms offer a look-up by photographing words with the iPhone camera.


“We find our cooperation with ABBYY truly beneficial for people who speak or learn Spanish around the world,” commented Tomás García Cerezo, editorial director at Larousse Mexico. “We are glad to bring our dictionary applications based on powerful ABBYY technologies to the fast-growing Apple iOS audience. Now they can easily work with high-quality content in most convenient and enjoyable way using their mobile phones.”
