Description

This module serves to maintain any multilingual vocabulary and is part of the multilingual dictionary in ClassiX®. It can record words or whole sentences (e.g. idioms) - so-called phrases - in any language. At the same time, the corresponding translations into other languages can be maintained. Since a word of a language can have several meanings at the same time, each word is directly assigned to one or more meanings, which - each meaning on its own - are or can be assigned to other words of other languages.

Additional information about a word - such as part of speech (noun, verb, adjective, etc.), numerus (singular, plural, plural noun, etc.), case, genus, etc. allow a word to be output with all its properties by means of the grammar rules for the individual languages stored in the module: for nouns, for example, with the definite article, the singular and plural form, as well as its declension.

The number and type of languages is set in the system settings; by default, the languages German, English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Danish and Russian are stored in the dictionary.

A built-in repetitor helps to learn words of any language.

The representation of characters on Windows platforms - with a German language environment - is carried out using code page 1252. It allows words of almost all Western European languages to be recorded. In addition, the character set language in ClassiX can be changed to display characters from other languages, such as Cyrillic, Arabic, etc. (MSFonts).(MSFonts)

Buttons
buttonDescription
StartThe repetitor starts with word output. In the title of the window, the number of words selected for the query is displayed according to the default settings. The number of words in brackets behind the title is the number of words that are due for translation, i.e. words that have not yet been or could not be successfully translated by the user.

If a word to be translated is output, the following appears first question_red.png button , which allows the system to output the translated word without any further waiting time. When this button is pressed, the word "unknown" to the user remains in the list of words requested and will be offered again for translation by the user at a later date. The system then offers another word for translation and the query cycle starts again from the beginning.

If the user initially translates the displayed word only for himself and waits for the preset waiting time, the system displays the translated word. In addition, the following appears for the duration of the preset learning time  check_green.png Button: at the moment the button is pressed by the user, the word to be translated is considered to be "known" by the user and will not be offered for translation again (in this query round). The query cycle starts again from the beginning.

If the user allows the learning time to elapse without pressing the  check_green.png button, the word is considered "not known" and will be asked again later. Afterwards the query cycle starts again from the beginning.
BreakThe répétiteur is interrupted. The list of words still to be translated remains, by pressing the "Start" button, the translation of the words can be resumed at any time.
ResetThe répétiteur is terminated and the list of words still to be translated is deleted. By pressing the "Start" button you can start again from the beginning.
