Introducing the International Edition Beta Program
For the new release of Visual Thesaurus 3, we're providing access to the beta version of the upcoming Visual Thesaurus International Edition free to all of our online subscribers. By providing it to our subscribers, free of charge, we feel we can learn more about the utility of this feature.
International Edition Features
Potential Uses for the International Edition
The International Edition is designed primarily for our customers learning English as a second language. You can use the International Edition to search in another language, and then see the results presented in English. You can then hear these words pronounced correctly, and navigate through meanings and other words to expand your knowledge.
Signing up for the Beta Program
If you are already a subscriber, you automatically have access to the International Edition. To seach for a word in another language, simply select the language from the pulldown menu before launching the Visual Thesaurus. Once the application has opened, you can change the display language of the Visual Thesaurus by clicking the "Edit" button to the right of the "Look It Up" button in the toolbar at the top of the window.
Subscribers can disable/re-enable the International Edition features by visiting the My Account section of the Subscriber website. If you subscribe to the Visual Thesaurus as part of an institution, you will need to ask your administrator to enable International Edition support. Subscribers who enable the International edition Beta may be asked to participate in surveys from time to time to help us improve our international support.
