HP-41 Dictionary Module: How good is your Spanish?
Buenos Días a Tod@s - Greetings fellow language enthusiasts.

So you always wanted to learn Spanish and never found the time or motivation to do it? Then you're in luck, just plug in the new English<>Spanish Dictionary module and enjoy the ride.

Well sort of, as the obvious limitations will apply given that this is (so far) a single 4k ROM, which holds a 236-word database. Small but a lot of fun nonetheless - I made sure I threw in a few challenging ones to exercise your prowess and test your command of the language ;-)

Soon at TOS near you - don't miss out!

ÁM.

If you don't use up space on the Latin conjugates that are already 45% of English, those 225 words (mostly verbs?) could be enough to piece together a newspaper. You've given us yet another excuse to carry the greatest calculator ever..... everywhere.

Module and QRG submitted to TOS already. I managed to squeeze in a few more words, so it's up to 236 now.
