Subject: Software for Dictionary Compilation

A former student who has become involved in compiling a small specialised
dictionary has asked me if any software is available which has been designed
specifically for this task. This is an area of which I have no particular
knowledge, as I have always managed by using the facilities on my
word-processing package or a simple data-base. If any Humanists have experience
in working with software intended for dictionary-building I would be pleased to
hear from them. The language concerned is Russian.
