Printed reference works – such as dictionaries, encyclopaedias, manuals, etc. –offer hostorically a sense of major quality and solidity, which is the reason why they are perceived as tools able to last over time. The purchase of a dictionary or encyclopaedia was based on the belief that future generations would benefit from it, and that kind of information would not have changed over time.

 

In fact, over the last few decades, reference works have evolved radically, in line with the great innovations that have affected the publishing industry: today there are available versions for computers, for mobile devices not to mention the myriad of online applications. However, despite the advantages offered by technology, certain crystallized habits remain difficult to scratch: if we need a dictionary, we are oriented to the traditional volume of paper in the bookshop, better if a well-known and consolidated author/publisher (it is useful, lasts in time, makes a good impression in the living room), while for the electronic version they prefer something free, often giving up quality.

Having worked for long time on the design of consultation tools such dictionaries and encyclopedias, it is very difficult to understand why it is better to spend more than double to use the same content, especially if we consider the pros and cons of the two alternatives.

Convenience

  • A dictionary/encyclopedia app offers the same content as the printed version, which is the result of years of work by the author, but costs less
  • An app can be installed on multiple devices (PC, smartphone, tablet, etc.) and is always available everywherever
  • Apps are generally updated periodically for free, while a new printed edition requires the purchase of a new volume at full price

Functionality

  • An app often offers the index of entries that allows you to search for matches by typing only a few characters
  • Search capabilities are much more flexible in apps. While on paper you have to browse hard, an app allows you to
    • Search for lemmas, also by approximation
    • Search the phraseology for all the entries in the work that contain the search criterion
    • Search for all text, finding all the entries that contain the criterion within the definition
    • Search selectively for scopes, for example, only in nouns or verbs
    • Store the history of searches made to quickly return to an item to be consulted
  • The interface of an app can be in multiple languages, allowing it to be used by users from other countries

A correct evaluation of these aspects should inevitably lead to the choice of an app compared to the printed volume, but the weight of the paper still contributes to distort the perceived value.

According to The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, a phrasal verb is a “verbal idiomatic word that consists of a verb and an adverb (for example, break down), or a verb and a preposition (for example, see to)”. Starting from this assumption, we can consider phrasal only the verb which, in conjunction with an adverb or a preposition, changes the basic meaning becoming idiomatic and acquiring a new and different semantic valence.

The app Hoepli Phrasal Verbs Dictionary by Fernando Picchi is a comprehensive guide to using and understanding English phrasal verbs. For each phrasal verb, various Italian translations are provided, which faithfully or extensively reproduce the meaning, further clarified by a wide range of examples, which also illustrate the use.

In addition to the index, where it is possible to automatically find the entries matching the characters you type, the app allows you to search for specific phrasal verbs. The Glossary option allows you to search for Italian verbs translated through an English phrasal verb, while the Full Text option allows you to search for Italian and English terms within all dictionary entries. To narrow the search scope, the Categories option lets you select specific categories (for example, anatomy, botany, policy, etc.).

Times when computing was strictly reserved for IT gurus are far away. Increasingly powerful hardware has laid the groundwork for ever more intuitive user interfaces that allow to take advantage of the technology in no time.

However, this great user-friendliness is not much useful when it becomes necessary to go beyond the simple setup of a password, someone asks you to manually configure an email account, or you need to manage your ADLS router at home. The problem is that under this superficial layer of ease of use, there it is still a need to know the world of tech concepts that remain essential to use the myriad of devices that surrounds us. This is true for simple do-it-yourself tasks, but particularly to deal with study and work.

These are the basic principles that guided me in the design ” Informatica – Manuale di teoria ed esercizi ” for the series Hoepli Test, a book intended primarily for those who must prepare university admission tests, public or military competitions, but which is also characterized as a valuable reference tool to learn the basic concepts necessary to address the world of computing, both in terms of hardware and software.

The arguments are organized for large thematic areas balancing synthesis and completeness to provide an effective tool that allows learning all that revolves around computing science, from the developments of the first computers to networks, the internet and the latest communication tools.

Each area is accompanied by numerous practical examples. At the bottom of each area there is a series of exercises, always complete with commented solution, for a quick learning.
The book ends with a glossary of terms to recall all the main concepts that must be part of everyone’s computer baggage.

The app Grande Dizionario Greco Classico by Jannis Korinthios aims to reconcile a scientific treatment with a clear, comprehensive and simple explanation, following the latest spreading and communication forms; it is mainly intended to satisfy the needs of classical secondary school and university students.

Designed with innovative graphical and textual features, the dictionary stands out because of the abundance of entries, and the comprehensiveness of verbal paradigms, constructions, phraseology, and idioms.

This dictionary is a definitive tool for the modern study of ancient Greek, away from both oversimplification and complexity, allowing effortless consultation to a wide range of users. The entry list includes all words used by authors commonly studied in secondary schools specializing in classical studies. Translations have been chosen in order to respect the current use of Italian language.

  

Product Description

  • User interface in Italian and English
  • Over 140,000 entries
  • 7,500 verbal paradigms and inflected forms

  • 13,500 phrases and proverbs
  • 4,500 synonyms and antonyms
  • 750 Greek prefixes and suffixes used in Italian
  • Complete offline use

In recent years, we’ve seen significant progresses in the software: in many sectors, such as graphics and publishing, programs have been created that have redefined the standard in processing processes. However, all this power does not guarantee that those who use them are a good graphic or a good editor. The same happened with the Internet.

Having a site has become a must for bloggers, professionals and companies. To this end, there are numerous tools, platforms and templates that allow you to create sites with extreme ease and speed, with the result that many believe and submit themselves to professional web designers.

Actually, creating and managing a site effectively requires professionalism, experience and a combination of factors that involve various skills and abilities. Here are some questions to ask those who will have to make it happen

Layout: simple and immediate

Pages that are too crowded create confusion and frustration among visitors, forcing them to examine large amounts of links and images to find what interests them. Simplicity makes websites easier to use.

The first impression is always the one that matters, and also applies to websites. The choice of a good graphic design is essential to retain visitors and encourage them to continue browsing.

Intuitive navigation and consistency

Nothing is more frustrating than the impossibility to find what you are looking for on a website. The pages must be well organized, with an optimized hierarchical structure that allows easy access to the various sections of the site.

The visitor should not feel like visiting a new site every time he opens a page. Consistency is essential as a reassuring factor and helps to make navigation easier.

Responsive or not?

Web sites can be accessed now from any device: computer, smartphone, tablet, etc. It is therefore essential that the site appears correctly on every device and on every screen, making sure to implement a responsive style.

Contents are critical

As beautiful as it is, a site with confusing and unclear contents is just an empty shell. It is essential to know the purpose of the site well and to create targeted content in line with the message to be transmitted. Always remeber that the mouse is like a remote control …. just one click to go elsewhere.

And the contents must be regularly updated and refreshed.

Testing, indexing and search engines

Clicking and seeing the famous “404” page not found is the first step to get visitors away. Each site must be checked and tested thoroughly with appropriate tools and with a certain frequency.

Added to this is the targeted selection of keywords to promote the site in search engines, a task that often requires the involvement of specialized companies.

Social and security

Sharing the contents of the site or blog requires the configuration of all necessary accounts (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and a corresponding effort in these areas to promote it with further effectiveness.

Also extremely important is the security of the site. Avoiding spam and attacks of any kind is essential to prevent this from being blocked or used for other unwanted activities.

Then…

These are just some of the key aspects to create and manage a good site, enough to understand that improvisation does not pay. Of course, anyone can decide to use a template or the wizards made available by hosting sites, but if we want a quality result, managed continuously, there is no doubt that it is better to choose experience and professionalism.
