The GOLDEN VERSION 2010, Magenta's new bi-directional
English-Greek Dictionary, reflects the experience
of at least six years, not only in its lexicographic
aspects but also in its interface.
In co-operation with Panagiotis Tsambounaras a distinguished
lexicographer, we recast the commercially successful
"Periektiko Aggloelliniko Lexico" (Comprehensive English-Greek
Dictionary) in electronic form.
The new software has many new features which you will
find very useful. In fact, so useful, that you will
never want to use your old dictionary again!
Its headwords are more than 365,000, it
counts more than 1,200,000 words and it
occupies about 100 MB of space in your hard disk.
If you are already impressed with these figures then
wait until you see its quality - it's in a league of
Every headword is phonetically transcribed and there
is a sound option.
The definition varies according to part of speech (verb,
noun, adjective) and subject-field (a science or profession).
Different definitions are hierarchically presented with
examples which are translated into Greek.
Different colours are used to specify different types
of information making its use easier and faster
to use - the user does not wade through endless lines
of irrelevant information.
It comes with "Dictionaries Explorer", MAGENTA's
new interface which sets new standards in its category.
This is another unique feature of the Dictionaries Explorer
software. Its function is twofold:
a) Mass translation of words. You can
type or paste as many words as you like and the Dictionaries
Explorer will translate them all simultaneously and
present them to you in table or text format. Hence,
you will have a full picture of all the words and concepts
you want to look up. By inference, you can choose the
definition that is more appropriate to the text you
are trying to translate.
b) Free text translation (word for word
translation). You can type or paste a whole chunk of
text and the Dictionaries Explorer will translate it
word for word. Thus, you will be able to get a general
idea about the meaning of the text.
You can search words in two ways: as headwords or
with a free text search.
Headword search: The Dictionaries Explorer will
search in the headword database and if there is a match
it will provide its definitions. This is the simplest
search function and it can be performed by any dictionary.
Free text search: this option is a unique feature.
You can search a word either as a headword or as part
of a headword. Hence, you can make full use of the dictionary
database and even find morphological variants or derivatives
with a single search.

For example if you try a headword search for the word
"work" the search engine will display 135 hits, whereas
in free text search (Ctrl+Enter) it will display 924 hits!
This function uses an "intelligent" algorithm which
finds the similarities amongst words. It is our own patent.
You can create and manage your own word groups.
You can create a word group, add to it
as many words as you like for easy and quick reference,
and you can print them as well. For example,
you might be reading a book or working on your English
lesson, either as a student or as a teacher: you can
create a word group with these words so that you can
check whether you have learned them, or you can print
them and attach them to your project or use them as
a vocabulary exercise for your students.
Furthermore, you can forward them to other users
of the dictionary so that they can add them to their
own word groups.
You can print a specific headword or a group of headwords.
The printout will come out in three columns, just
like conventional dictionaries with the font type
and size of your choice. This feature, combined with
the word groups, enables you to make the best out of
your dictionary - no matter how far you are from
You can hear all the English words or phrases, headwords,
examples of usage, idioms, even texts derived from other
applications like Microsoft Word and Internet Explorer.
For example, you might be connected to the internet
and you' ve accessed a page written in the English language.
Instead of reading it you can use the Dictionaries
Explorer to read it aloud to you. The same applies to
This feature is available through the use of speech
synthesis technology - a breakthrough in human-machine
You can use any speech synthesis application (Microsoft's,
IBM's, etc.). The standard package includes Ìicrosoft's
speech engine which is offered free of charge
along with 17 different voices, so that you
can select the one you like best.
ADDITION OF NEW WORDS
You can also add your own words, thus enriching the
original database or add new definitions to already
The Dictionaries Explorer is not a rigid interface.
You can modify the way it behaves and the way it appears.
For each object that appears in the window you can modify
its appearance, colour, background
If you don't like the default colours you can easily
apply the ones you like. If the font is not to your
liking or its size is too small you can increase it,
