Babylon Glossary Builder 3.1 is a free application that allows you to create glossaries to include and display in the Enterprise Babylon program. It is a useful and easy to use tool which in very few steps allows generating and editing glossaries styles from .Xls, .Txt and .Gls files. Once you've created your glossary you’ll be able to include it in your Babylon client application and / or upload it to the online database of glossaries and dictionaries of Babylon. From there, other people may download the glossary you've created and include it in their Babylon applications.

The interface of this program is very friendly because it takes the form of a creation wizard, in which you will follow step by step instructions and in a few moments you'll have created a glossary from an external data file. Some of the utilities that you will have available to edit your glossary are the followings:
-- Editing full glossary style or a part of it through the use of labels and HTML templates.
-- Converting Excel data tables into a friendly glossary that will provide information with a click of the mouse.
-- Utilities to define how data will be extracted from Excel tables, such as headers, defining columns of key terms and alternative terms, selecting the column that includes definitions, etc.
-- Including links to terms of your glossary to redirect users to a website, so they can send an email or view an external file embedded in the glossary.
-- Including icons and .Bmp or .Jpg images in your glossary, to enrich the definitions.
-- Including a user manual to your glossary, this will be then available for users who install the Babylon client.
