The history of the electronic dictionary

    The earliest electronic dictionaries in China appeared in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

    At the earliest, there was only a very simple function of checking the dictionary and calculator. The keyboard and the screen were designed together, so that the display screen was very small, only the simple translation was realistic, and the dictionary data could not be updated.

Subsequent mainstream designs are generally arranged separately from the keyboard, like a small laptop model. With the advancement of technology, some have become smaller, the size is like the size of a credit card, and some are larger and clearer screens. The larger the capacity is enough to build a large dictionary with authorization, such as the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary.

The electronic dictionary has been developed to be comparable to mobile phones and PDAs, with a wide range of functions including color touch screen display, MP3 music playback, movie playback, and WiFi connection to the Internet.

The electronic dictionary is a digital learning tool that converts traditional printed dictionaries into digital methods for quick query. The computer dictionary is characterized by light and easy to carry, fast query, and rich functions. It has become a pocket tool for students in the 21st century to learn and live and to move around the society.

Since the launch of the first electronic dictionary product in 1989, the development of English e-learning tools in China has gone through 16 years. From the early aristocratic special products to the current student essentials, the electronic dictionary market has soared. Since 2002, it has become unstoppable, and the advertisements are overwhelming and the sales are extremely hot.
