ROSH HA'AYIN, Israel, March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Wizcom Technologies, the world's leading producer of portable scanning pens, has released the Quicktionary(R) TS Premium, a pocket-sized, user-friendly portable dictionary and scanning device enabling students, and people working in multilingual environments to translate and define printed material anytime and anywhere, without disrupting their reading process. The Quicktionary(R) TS Premium also scans printed text and transfers it to a PC.

Our products are developed using unique expertise in linguistics and image processing. We have 'best-of-breed' achievements in the fields of microelectronics, electro-optics and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) algorithm engines.

The product is customizable using the Wizcard, an extension card allowing for additional content to be added to the Pen, such as dictionaries, OCR languages and text-to-speech components. Users can easily switch between the Wizcard and original flash card to take advantage of the wide range of content available.

Wizcom is constantly developing new content in an effort to provide text solutions for a wide variety of languages, including those not previously addressed by any other device or program. For example our new Hebrew to Russian and Hebrew to English dictionaries.

Hebrew is a language with particularly complex grammar, where meaning and spelling are influenced by a great number of factors. The dictionary combines modern Hebrew, slang and Biblical language. A further feature is transliteration of Hebrew into the Latin alphabet.

CEO Shimon Amouyal stated, "Wizcom's goal is to assist people to improve their language capabilities. The new Quicktionary(R) TS Premium and the Wizcard's added functionality will definitely help to achieve these goals."

The product will be sold worldwide via and through selected distributors in Europe, the US and Israel.
