    Which Dictionary for Palm?

    I'm looking at dictionaries to use with my Tungsten T5 (which runs on OS 5). I've tried the one by Lingvosoft and am now staring at a list of dictionaries on palmgear.com. Which ones are good (as in, usable), and come closest to the the Windows-only dictionary that is popular with Russian (cann't remember name)?

    I'm also checking out flashcard applications for Palm so that would be useful for me to know of recommendations as well. I'm planning to get a flash card so I can put the entire dictionary on it.

    Lingvo's the one you were referring to, I believe.

    Right. I'm taking another look at it. Looked at the english version and the latest there is Lingvo 9.0. My understanding is version 10 is out now but of course, it's all in Russian. What are the new features?

    Version 10 has updated Universal, Grammar, Computer and Science dictionaries, a few new economics-related dictionaries, Encyclopedic Dictionary about USA "AMERICANA II", word learning helper program Linvgo Tutor, and Palm OS reader (in addition to Pocket PC one in version 9).
    Here are the links to it on ozon.ru (Russian web shop which sends overseas):
    English-Russian version (has only E-R-E dictionaries, can add only E-R-E user dictionaries):
    http://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/2072815/
    "First Step" version (has selected E-R-E dictionaries, can't add user dictionaries at all)
    http://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/2125127/
    Multilingual version (has all dictionaries, including some French, German, Spanish and Italian. Can add any language user dictionary)
    http://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/2072810/

    All Lingvo applications have both Russian and English interface.

    Free addon dictionaries for Lingvo:

    Hope this helps.

    How nice. That second site lists a bunch of nice dictionaries I'd like to have, but then he makes you go look for them in a huge list of sites. Grrr...

    Is there a demo of the dictionary available or do I have tp spend the money to be able to use it? I like to get a feel for the program before I start using it.

    There used to be a trial version available for download but looks like they took it down. You can check the dictionary itself online: http://www.lingvo.ru/lingvo/ and http://lingvo.yandex.ru/
