Interlex is a free Windows application that helps you learn vocabulary in a foreign language quickly and easily. The program is built around a simple idea: first you compile a list of words and phrases, then you test yourself until you have learnt them.

You can use Interlex to create bilingual vocabulary lists in any two of the following languages: Afrikaans, Albanian, Basque, Belorussian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian.

The main features of Interlex are:

  • targeted testing in 4 different modes
  • multiple translations in native language
  • intelligent evaluation of alternative responses
  • informative feedback using text, colour and sound
  • powerful editor with Undo, Sort, Find and Print
  • automatic keyboard and font selection
  • selection of ready-to-use vocabulary files
  • wide range of user preference options
  • context-sensitive Help and daily tips

Interlex provides a highly focused, interactive learning environment that allows you to improve your language skills rapidly. Creating your own Interlex files is an excellent way to explore a language and become familiar with new vocabulary. You can then commit this knowledge to long-term memory by testing yourself in a variety of ways. Words and phrases are carefully selected with reference to previous input, encouraging you to concentrate on those you find difficult. Feedback is immediate and informative, without any distracting special effects. The overall result is a tangible sense of progress that makes vocabulary learning a pleasure instead of a chore.

Language learners can use Interlex to create vocabulary lists relating to literary passages, newspaper articles, specific themes (e.g. environmental issues), or problems of grammar (e.g. uses of the superlative). When testing vocabulary, Interlex analyses your responses intelligently and concentrates on words and phrases you find difficult to remember. Using Interlex for just 20 minutes a day will dramatically improve your knowledge of a language. The vocabulary lists you create over the duration of your course will also prove invaluable when you need to prepare for an exam.

Language teachers can use Interlex to create vocabulary files tailored to a particular course. Students will find it much easier to learn the material and will come to lessons better prepared as a result. You can make your files available over a network, distribute them via e-mail, or print them out for classroom use. As soon as your students start using Interlex regularly, you will notice a great improvement in their aptitude for vocabulary learning.
