In Armenia, an on-line Machine Translation system and dictionary may be found at the URL http://www.translator.am. It translates between three languages: Eastern Armenian, English and Western Armenian. In addition, this Web site provides semantic dictionary for these three languages and spelling checkers for Western an Eastern Armenian languages. The site has 2500 daily users (70% from Armenia, 30% from outside). Virage Logic has placed at the URL http://www.avc-agbu.org bi-directional dictionaries from Eastern and Western Armenian into English, Russian, French and Spanish and vice versa, as well as a glossary of architecture terms in all mentioned languages. These dictionaries are multimedia, and contain pictorial, written and verbal forms for a word to be translated or explained. They can be used both within some lesson or separately as a usual dictionary. These dictionaries and the glossary are integrated in the Armenian Virtual College (AVC) and they are not available as separate products, although, in the meantime they got a special software, templates and can easily implement these dictionaries separately.
