...I don't quite understand. What sort of dictionary are you looking to create? I ask due to all the dictionaries out there already why a person would want to create one, unless you it's for specific reasons.

First you need to tell what type of dictionary.

If you mean a CLASSIC PAPER BASED DICTIONARY then any old word processor will do. If you mean a new electronic dictionary then we have a lot of ground to cover.

Sadly this reply did not reveal what type of dictionary you want to make.

Maybe all you need is a word processor?

Your first post.

Did not reveal you wanted to create a software title on par with all the features of the Longman software.

Now that I know this I can answer you. You'll have to hire a programmer and work out an exact plan for each screen you want to show and all the features. In a few months your software should be ready.

Nov 21, 2010 4:52AM PST grandmother was still alive, full Italian and fluent in both English and Italian. I admit to only learning some colorful words in Italian. Back to the point..

There are some resources but I assume you know it's not going to be a fast project

If you ever plan on putting the dictionary out for public use, you may want to make sure there are no copyright violations.

Hello, ali76767676!

I guess you need some kind of notes software featured to allow you to sort alphabeticaly english words and their meanings in Italian or viceversa, so you can organize them in a particular way. If I?m right, check here, at Cnet Downloads, TreePad Lite or TreePad Plus and My Notes Keeper. In my opinion, these are the best ones.

Spanish (understandable for Italians):
Supongo que necesitas alg?n programa de notas que te permita organizar alfabeticamente palabras en ingl?s y su significado en italiano o viceversa. Si estoy en lo correcto, revisa aqu?, en Cnet Downloads, TreePad Lite o TreePad Plus y My Notes Keeper. En mi opini?n, estos son los mejores.

I Hope this helps
