Nokia Mobile Dictionary is a free Symbian S60 3rd ed. program that allows you to install up to three languages (english and two additional languages). It translates words, lets you hear words in a funny but functional computer voice, and of course it tells you what the words mean.
It's meant for a limited set of new Nokia's only, and the installer comes with the firmware, not as a separate download. Maybe Nokia will release Nokia Mobile Dictionary for all it's smartphones, or maybe Nokia won't. But a smart girl or guy called miniME managed to extract the Nokia Mobile Dictionary installer from the Nokia E71 firmware, so Nokia Mobile Dictionary is now available for many more phones than Nokia thinks.
You'll need to sign the program with a developer certificate, or install it on a hacked phone, but that's really easy. Just check symbianhack.site666.info for details.
