Understand and Learn Chinese in English, Malay and Portuguese

As the first Chinese language learning software to support Multi-Language Extensions (MLX), Loqu8 iCE displays instant, dictionary based translations of Chinese text in English. With MLX , iCE can auto-translate the English into other languages.
Dec. 7, 2010 - PRLog -- MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Loqu8, the pioneer in augmented learning, today announced iCE 5.5, the first instant Chinese translation and learning tool with MLX. This new software tool shows translations from Chinese into English—or 50 other languages, including German, Spanish, Japanese and Korean.

“Loqu8 iCE helps you understand and learn Chinese with instant English meanings,” described Dr. Timothy Uy, President and CEO of Loqu8. “With Loqu8’s powerful LiveScan and MLX technologies, Chinese learners may now choose to automatically translate definitions into their native language. This auto-translation capability dramatically reduces language learning time and boosts long-term retention.”

Multi-Language Extensions™ (MLX)
Loqu8 iCE (iNterpret Chinese-English) is the first program to support MLX. For the first time, learn Chinese from over 50 languages including:  Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Greek, Haitian (Creole), Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malay, Maltese, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, Welsh and Yiddish.
MLX automated translation technology is powered by Loqu8’s iNtuition™ engine and Google® Translate. Learners of Chinese may access MLX by gliding their mouse over Chinese (LiveScan) or highlighting Chinese text (HighlightScan). iCE immediately shows the selected Chinese text (simplified and traditional), phonetics (Pinyin or Bopomofo) and the meaning through a pop-up window. Users may also listen to the word and phrases pronounced in Mandarin Chinese.

iCE 5.5 Enhancements
This updated version of iCE brings native x64 support for 64-bit versions of Microsoft® Windows 7 and Vista. Newer desktops and notebooks are now equipped with 4MB or more of memory. As a native 64-bit application, iCE users will automatically experience slightly greater performance.

Ruby text is a powerful technique used to help Chinese learners. By placing Pinyin or Bopomofo phonetic annotations near Chinese text, learners gain familiarity with Chinese while developing associative memory. iCE generates and formats ruby text with perfect alignment in Microsoft Excel. Users may also transfer the ruby text into Microsoft PowerPoint or Word for advanced text and table formatting. Popular users for ruby text include presentations, vocabulary guides, music lyric sheets and personal study guides.

By popular request, iCE now supports text-based PDF documents. Depending on the PDF reader, Loqu8’s LiveScan (hover mouse over Chinese text) and HighlightScan (highlight Chinese text) capabilities are available to provide instant Chinese translations through a pop-up window. With MLX, the auto-translations may appear in the user’s choice of English, Filipino, Portuguese, Thai or 50 other languages.
