Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This rather simple but educational screensaver helps you learn basic vocabulary in five languages. LinguaSaver supports English, Italian, French, Spanish, and German tongues. When you launch the application, you'll see a boring black screen with two small question marks in the middle. One word in one language will appear above the question marks, while its translation in another language will show up below them. You can choose which two languages LinguaSaver should use, turn text effects on or off, and determine how long translations stay onscreen. Rather than offering phrases or sentences, the app keeps the focus on simple vocabulary words, meaning it can't be used as any kind of full-blown learning tool. Still, students looking to brush up on the brass tacks of major European languages might find the program at least worth trying.

Developer's Description

LinguaSaver is an educational screensaver to help you learn languages, including English, Spanish, French, Italian, or German. This free educational screensaver displays phrases translated between two of these five languages, in random order. The settings window lets you select languages, categories of vocabulary, speed, and text effects. You also can add and edit your own phrases. It's a great tool to help memorize words, phrases, and conjugations of verbs in English, Spanish, French, Italian, or German, and it uses the hypnotic power of screensavers in a positive way. Version 1.1 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, and bug fixes.
