Default BerryDict Reviews? + Translators?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,
Next month I will be going to Italy and as apposed to buying a book or handheld translator i was looking for one for my 8310.

BerryDict looks the most appealing as of yet so I was wondering if anybody has used this program and could provide insights.

Additionally if anyone has other suggestions for translators it would be much appreciated. *It cannot be connected to a server because data costs would be through the roof!*

Thanks

BerryDict has a built-in database of words. It seems to work very well on older devices but somehow there are problems on newer devices. I don't know really much about that but I guess it is worth a try.

Does this program (or other) translate in BOTH directions?

If I want to translate an English word to Italian, it can do that but what if I want to know what and Italian word means in English?

I use MobiSystems dictionary and translators.

All databases can be stored on board (device memory) or on your media card. I find they work quite well. No wireless connection required.
