babylon builder Jun 17, 2004

at www.babylon.com is a free and good program. I use it for some years to build my own glossaries.

I didn't really know about this software. At the first view it seems quite practical and easy to use. I already started to build my first glossary in this program thanks to your valuable suggestion Selcuk.

I already tried it and it's cute and easy to use. However Babylon itself is not free. You can try it for free for a certain period of time then you have to buy it.

Any way, I'd like to know if it works for 3 languages, and if not, do you any other software that can give me that option?

Thanks

In babylon builder there is a feature called alternate form(s) which enables you to build a 3-language glossary.
In fact I create my own glossary in MS Word and then save as HTML and convert to babylon builder dictionary file. It easily creates 100+ pages long dictionaries. After creating the builder file you may also add some extra formating, e.g. bold, italic, colour, font size, etc. with the help of a text editor like editplus. www.editplus.com
