I am looking for a software that could help me create my own dictionary (extension). While there are excellent dictionaries for Spanish out there both freely available on the web as well as commercial ones, those tend to be rather weak when one has to delve more deeply into a specific domain with its own specialized vocabulary.
Using search engines and sites like wikipedia it is possible to find the correct translations for rather special vocabulary. But I would like to save the results of such research in a form that would allow me to consult it later. For example, I just did a little research that came up with Spanish translations for expressions like parallel computing, actor systems and message passing. So, is there any free or commercial software out there that could help me with that? It should, of course, have full-text search, and ideally allow me to organize entries into categories using tags.
My approaches so far have been
- a notebook (yes, a paper one...)
- all kinds of different programs like text editors, text processors, Excel, leading to my favorite so far:
- a mindmap using FreeMind, which gives me some limited search functionality and the possiblity to structure its content
[By the way, I found this paper to be a good resource for Spanish vocabulary on parallel computation.]
