CNET Editors' reviewSpeak softly but carry a large vocabulary. While not the most visually exciting program, Interlex is a powerful and free application that aids in the mastery of foreign languages. Choosing among dozens of languages, you can practice translation between two tongues and track progress through multiple-choice tests. To begin learning, you can use the program's vocabulary lists, download more from the developer's site, or build your own. Geared to push you toward more difficult words and phrases, the program removes terms from the testing list once you master them. Still, we think the addition of a pronunciation option would help improve the overall learning experience. That said, this is a great program for language learners anywhere, and it comes at no financial commitment.
From Andrew Quilley:
Interlex is a vocabulary builder that helps you learn words and phrases in a foreign language. First you compile a list of words and phrases, then you test yourself until you have learned them. You can use Interlex to create bilingual vocabulary lists in 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, and Ukrainian.
The program provides targeted testing in four modes; multiple translations; color and sound; automatic keyboard and font selection; a selection of ready-to-use vocabulary files for French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish; and context-sensitive Help and daily tips.

"Why does not the Hebrew language?"
Version: Interlex 220.127.116.11
Hebrew: holy language is missing
Israel's language: Hebrew, is missing! Why?
Please add the Hebrew language, thanks.
"Does exactly what it says, very versatile"
Version: Interlex 18.104.22.168
Great facility for learning languages, or creating your own tests
Very uncomplicated to use
Nothing that I can think of
I have used Interlex for learning a variety of languages and different things and I just love it. There is a vast catalogue of downloadable libraries in so many different languages and categories and if you can't find what you want, you can create your own using vocab from books or the internet. You don't need to limit yourself to using Interlex to learn languages either, create your own tests for unlimited possibilites.
