PONS Online Dictionary - App Review



Translating from your native language to another is full of pitfalls. The only way that you can be sure is if each word is fully explained, in context. PONS goes very much in this direction.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The basic screen contains just four basic options, which you access after entering whatever you are attempting to translate in the search box, as well as the from and to languages:

Search
Having entered the search term, you have listed the various definitions in the native language, and then the individual translations. This is very useful... as in a dog collar; wouldn't want to confuse a canine friend with a priest, would we?

Text
Here you enter far more text, such as a sentence or paragraph, and then press 'translate'. No alternatives are offered but there is a 'result satisfactory' button. This reminds you to be very careful when translating. As an example, 'My vicar sports a dog collar' translates as 'my vicar wears a dog's collar'.

Favourites
this enables you to have immediate access to your important translations.

Settings
This has various statutory information, as well as login access to PONS (not mandatory)

Cost
The App is free and supported by advertising.

Indispensability
A dictionary is indispensable. The single word translations are very comprehensive.

Dependability
The App requires an Internet connection... hardly a surprise, given the App's name.

Security
There are no particular issues.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Single word translations are excellent.
