AbstractCurrent paper is devoted to ABBYY Lingvo electronic dictionary, which is not only a dictionary software, but a family of software products, jointly termed the ABBYY Lingvo Platform. The ABBYY Lingvo Platform includes a range of dictionary software components, which are aimed at meeting same dictionary users’ needs – finding an appropriate translation to the word in the given context. The software parts of ABBYY Lingvo Platform are available in different technological realization and for different usage scenarios: as a mobile software, a software for desktop computers or laptops, and as a client-server software made both for professional translators and language learning beginners. The components of ABBYY Lingvo Platform are: ABBYY Lingvo Desktop, ABBYY Lingvo Mobile, ABBYY Lingvo Server, and ABBYY Lingvo Content dictionary writing system. These products operate as well as in connection with each other through ABBYY data centre and independently from each other, for example when the internet connection is unavailable. The applications enable quick and easy access to the dictionary and reference content provided by dictionary publishers, other content providers and also to the content created by the dictionary users themselves. The main needs of dictionary users are covered, such as the ability to use dictionary content stored on different media (online, desktop and mobile), convenient tools for its usage – wide range of search and lookup capabilities together with user-friendly interface, and the possibility to use dictionary content from different content providers in one format and in the same software ‘shell’. We believe that the ABBYY Lingvo Platform will cover the main market needs and help end users to get answer to their questions and give new ideas to content providers how to manage the content.
