Find the right words with Vodafone live! and WordFinder Now all Vodafone live! users in Sweden always have a dictionary in their pocket, and know where to find the English and Swedish words when they need them. The mobile dictionary is offered in Vodafone live! by WordFinder Software AB. In addition to this new partnership, the Vodafone live user interface has also been given a new look*, which makes it even easier to make use of all of Vodafone live's content services.
