From Town Compass:
Spanish translations for every situation!
Whether you're a traveler, student, teacher, native speaker, or just curious, you will find this database fast, comprehensive and extremely valuable.
There are 3 ways to navigate for translations:
1) FingerpointÂ® alphabetical Index, which lists all of the subcategories together for faster browsing. The Graffiti Quick-Find Autoscroll feature is available here -- while in the Index, just use the Palm OS Graffiti strokes in the Graffiti area to quickly jump to the subcategories beginning with the selected letter.
2) Search feature; tap on the Search icon while in the Database (magnifying glass icon in the lower right of the Graffiti area on Palm OS devices, binoculars icon at the bottom of the screen on Pocket PC devices), and a search box will appear. Just type in the word (English or Spanish!) you want to find and tap OK to begin the search. You'll get a list of matches that you can tap on to immediately jump to the selected translation.
