We now have a version of the Glossary Assistant which can be used on much smaller Android devices, such as a phone. The overall functionality remains the same.. up to 10 languages, fast sorting, intuitive searching, import/export to PC or other Android device. With the Glossary Assistant suite of applications all data can be used by both the PC and Android devices with no conversion. All apps permit creation and modification of the glossaries on the fly. (of course you must synch data on your own)
Go to the resources tab. There you can download a zip file folder with a working PC version. The functionality of the PC version is basically the same as the Android version. Of course, the PC version is mouse driven rather than touch driven.
In addition, you can create a new glossary within the application as well as upload from your existing glossaries. We await feedback on how the application looks on various devices and screen sizes and resolutions. With proper feedback from you, we should be able to make any modifications required. If your locale is not supported for sorting, let us know and it can be added.
After downloading, you expand the zip file. The parent folder (PCGlossaryAssistant) must be moved out of the ‘zip folder’ folder. Move the entire folder. You must maintain the structure of all sub-folders. The file ending in .jar is the executable file. Therefore you must have at least the Java runtime environment installed on your PC. Once installed into a suitable location, you can create a shortcut to the executable .jar file.
The DB and Download txt files can be exported/imported directly to/from your Android device, preferably via a USB cable connection.
The macros provided will help you export/import Word glossaries which are in table form, provided that you follow a few simple rules.
The application as well as 2 sample glossaries are available free of charge thru the Google Play store.
Coming Soon: Glossary Assistant will be available to run on Windows PC based computers. Functionality will be slightly different since it will be mouse oriented and making use of some other standard Windows features.
