You can also translate text (word by word), search for incomplete words, sort the languages in alphabetical order, rearrange the order of the languages, save your score, save as HTML, and show only the languages you're interested in. Each word is rated according to frequency of use. You can choose to see only the words of a certain range of frequencies or to be asked for words of that level. You can also add and delete your vocabulary and categories, and cut/copy/paste between a spreadsheet program and JLearnIt. You can change the language and the skin of JLearnIt. You can get more information about the word on the Internet and save your configuration. JLearnIt won't ask you the same word if you know the word. It won't ask you for the word that starts with the same letters as the translation. You can edit words and set properties for this word.

Vocab Builder is a collection of two separate programs. The client is the testing application that uses a drill-style method of building your vocabulary in a foreign language, similar to using flash-cards. The editor allows you to create a new, or modify an existing, database for your own personal use. Since the design of the project allows a user to create their own databases/tests, they can not only focus on the words they want/need to learn, but also are not restricted by availability of choice. No more are you restricted by only the databases available to you. Many language teaching applications only allow you to learn the languages they've supplied you. Most North American-based programs cater to English speaking users and only give you a selection of other languages to choose from. Not only can Vocab Builder use any language combination of Native and Secondary languages but it's also open-ended. You can share your tests with others. You can expand the database of words in any direction you want. Word lists are meant to be broken down into categories like colors, sizes, numbers, etc.
