your lexicon to yourself! Share it with others!
You've spent years working on your
dictionary, but how easy is it for others to make the most of it? Are the
speakers of the language getting any benefit from it? Is it user-friendly
enough for a non-linguist to look at? Are translators making the best use of
it? Are partner organisations using it? Do university professors have it on
their computers? Is it in local schools, government offices and cyber-cafés? Can
people download it from your website? Or is it just lying on your hard disk or
hidden away gathering dust in the corner of a library somewhere?
Lexique Pro is all about making your data usable, accessible and easy to share
with others. And not only that... you may find you use it more yourself!
Lexique Pro is an interactive lexicon
viewer and editor, with hyperlinks between entries, category views, dictionary reversal,
search, and export tools. It's designed to display your data in a user-friendly
format so you can distribute it to others.
