Launch of Lingo 4.0 Terminology Management System
This is a brand new version of Lingo, our Windows
based terminology management system. It is simple to use
yet very much more powerful than previous versions, allowing
the creation and management of large multilingual dictionaries
in any language combinations. The application is fully Unicode
compatible, handling all character sets, and can import and export
XML (TMX) and text files. Dictionaries can be consulted
easily using a dedicated search function and multiple dictionaries can
be searched through simultaneously. Drag and drop functionality allows
easy insertion of words into documents and facilitates the creation
of dictionaries. The program can be used with any Windows word processor
and has been developed with flexibility in mind. Lingo 4.0 is local area
network friendly, allowing simultaneous sharing of dictionaries. An
is available for download.
Microsoft Transliteration Utility
A small free Windows application that enables you to transcribe
text from one alphabet to another. For example, you could transcribe
some Serbian written in Cyrillic characters into Serbian written in Latin
characters and vice versa. This can be useful if you do not have the right keyboard.
There are nine transliteration modules provided with the software and there is the
possibility to create new ones or to use existing third party transliteration modules.
Google Book Search
With this new service from Google, you can find books you are looking for in a few seconds
and discover new ones as well. You simply enter a word or sentence into
the search box, click on Search Books, and you will get a list of
all the books containing your search criteria. You can then view either just the
fragment of the book containing your criteria or information about the book or have access to
a limited number of pages of the book. If the book is in the public domain (out of copyright),
you can view it in its entirety.
New Dictionaries and Glossaries
Below are some interesting resources that we have
recently added to the lexicool directory:|
UEA Multilingual Dictionary for the Furniture Industry (DE-EN-ES-FR-IT-NL-NO-RO)
This dictionary, compiled by the UEA, a European-wide furnishing industry federation, covers
all the terminology relating to furniture and related accessories, and to the machinery and
materials used in the production of furniture.
Trilingual Index of Expressions with Equivalent Meanings (EN-ES-FR)
An interactive site offering thousands of idiomatic expressions which have the same
meaning in English, French and Spanish, but which cannot be translated word for word.
Various search criteria can be used to look for expressions. Searches can be by keyword,
key phrase or by category (e.g. anatomy, nature, food, etc.). Expressions are
displayed in context in a short paragraph in order to help users understand the
meaning. The paragraph is also available in audio format (MP3).
