Editors' review

GoNaomi aims to provide a multilanguage dictionary with which users can look up words in different languages and compare them side-by-side within the program's interface. Unfortunately, its slow performance and lack of translation options left little to be desired.

From the get-go, GoNaomi functioned slowly. The program indicated that there was a "fatal SQL" error, which led us to believe that there could be a problem with the program's database. Since the program is essentially a database, this is a very large problem indeed. We tried the program by selecting English as the language to which we wanted words translated. We then selected Russian, and typed the word "cat" into the search box. GoNaomi translated the word for us, and it did so when we tried a few other languages. We wished the program had an option to translate more than just one word at a time, which could come in handy for both business and casual travelers alike.

The version of program we reviewed is free, with an option to purchase it. There is no mention of what added features you get with the paid version of the program. The program's menu has a Help button, but it does not contain useful help; it merely directs you to the program's Web site. The program installs and uninstalls easily, but adds shortcut items to your desktop without asking. Thanks to its slow performance and lack of options, we recommend that users look for a more functional translation program.

    "Not at all useful to me."

    April 20, 2009   |   By OldeFart

    Version: GoNaomi Dictionary 1.78

    Pros

    no pro simply because I couldn't get it to function correctly.

    Cons

    From what did come up (unless it was a result from not functioning) this product is useless..

    Summary

    When I contacted the web sight I could find nothing to relate to customer service or help.. In fact, other than crowing about their dictionary there was nothing at all helpful about them.. The dictionary would not give me any definitions for the words I would choose from their list (which would not scroll down) to words that I entered on their search box... And if I chose another language (which was it's main selling point) I would get from two to four different words that (supposedly) had the same meaning of the word (in english for instance) that I querried while not receiving a deffinition from any of the words involved. It should be understood that this could have been the result of my computer not accepting this particular software but why not at least have a help sight for problems like this and if it's not my system (which I investigated) then this product will disappoint a lot of users. I should say, try it yourself and write your own review. Myself? I wasen't at all impressed.

    "Wow, a lot of languages"

    September 01, 2008   |   By steveharms76

    Version: GoNaomi - Dictionary 1.75

    Pros

    It offers so many languages that it is hard to pick from just what I want to learn the day of building the program.

    Cons

    it could run slowly on some systems, but for what you get in information, I would still find it worth it.

    Summary

    It functions quite well, going back and forth between language pairs seemlessly. It seems like one gigantic integrated languages defining environment. I would only offer more languages and words so that people can learn more about the other languages and the cultures representing them.

    "No limitations? You got to be joking?"

    February 21, 2008   |   By heinziten

    Version: GoNaomi - dictionary 1

    Pros

    The whole idea is great - to call it 'Freeware' is not!

    Cons

    The 'free' version allows you only one dictionary (in my case I was interested in English to German). But if I want German to English (and of course I will need that!), I have to pay for it. I suggest you just be honest, and call it shareware.
