Helsinki 1.6.2009

Lingsoft Oy publishes a new miniature dictionary from the multi-channel One-Hour Words series called Naantali tunnissa (Naantali in One Hour), a guide to local culture.

This fun and informative package introduces the readers to the "new" Naantali a result of recent municipal enlargement. The glossary describes the sights, destinations and events happening in old Naantali and other local towns including Merimasku, Rymättylä and Velkua. The glossary was written by the Turun Sanomat (Turku daily newspaper) chief editor Raimo Vahtera, and was produced in cooperation with the town of Naantali and Naantali Tourist Services. The publication was launched on 1.6.2009 as was the digital version which was available for download over the Internet and for listening online at Lingsoft's speech portal.

Vocabulary in an hour

The idea behind Lingsoft Inc.'s multichannel One-Hour Words series is to choose a subject area and to compress the central concepts into a glossary format. The final product is reminiscent of an encyclopaedia, but every One-Hour Words glossary can be read in just one hour.

Prize winning integrated marketing innovation

In the series format the glossaries are published and delivered using four separate media channels. In addition to the traditional paper version One-Hour Words glossaries can be viewed on mobile phones, downloaded via the Internet as ebooks and heard aloud using synthesized speech audio-books. The New Technology Foundation awarded Lingsoft an innovation prize for the One-Hour Words concept which integrates new technologies and new forms of marketing.
