The DictionaryPen is a major technological breakthrough for anyone working or studying in a language. The embedded camera and OCR technology enables lookup or translation of words without the need for a single click or even an internet connection. Simply pass the nib across a word and it instantly displays the definition and reads the word.

The device hosts nine (9) OXFORD Academic and English Language Teaching (ELT) dictionaries supporting six different languages including English. It’s a totally portable, pocket-sized device that pronounces the looked up word with a natural speaking text to speech voice.

It’s also a scanner for capturing lines of text and uploading to a PC, Mac or Linux computer, making it ideal for students, teachers and professionals to capture essential information.

There is no software required to upload the text, just plug and scan.

Other features include a built-in voice recorder with playback.

  • Look up/translate words in dictionary in six different languages
