Alternate Dictionary icon This intuitive and easy to understand piece of software allows you to create a dictionary of your own for various words or phrases

Having a constant connection to the Internet has meant people increasingly come into contact with foreign languages. This has translated into an increase in demand for adequate dictionaries and similar translation products. Alternate Dictionary is a highly intuitive application allowing its users to swiftly generate new lexicons with customized definitions.

Create new dictionaries

The tool is very easy to employ, as a simple layout ensures newcomers can add new words and corresponding definitions with just a few mouse clicks. Users are not limited to any predefined setups, and one can opt for a regular English lexicon, as well as for foreign language dictionaries.

New entries are added by defining a new term and inserting an explanation and a search option can be employed to view items already created. Once a new entry is saved, the application automatically inserts it into all the other available modules.

Save projects to CSV or HTML formats

These include a translation component, as well as a vocabulary training tool. The first item automatically translates source phrases using recorded entries, while the latter is a perfect method of rehearsing new words. A notable feature is the ability to batch edit all the source data; when dealing with dictionaries numbering thousands of entries, this option can be extremely useful.

Once satisfied with their work, users can save projects to CSV and HTML formats, thus allowing one to disseminate glossaries quickly. Alternatively, users can also generate standalone portable EXE documents, a feature further improving accessibility.

An overall good dictionary generator, complete with translation and vocabulary training modules

To sum up, Alternate Dictionary is a valuable tool for anyone considering creating new dictionaries. It allows its users to insert new entries quickly, including in batch mode, and one can generate portable EXEs out of the current projects.
