|Software for Free Download, Evaluation Software|
Free edition of TibetD Reader Software (Windows):
the free version of TibetD Reader.
Note that this software is for Windows; we do not have a general Reader for the Mac (though we do have Mac versions of three of our dictionaries). The Reader will work in all versions of Windows from XP up and has minimal memory and disk storage requirements.
Commercial software does not fully support Tibetan text formatting and mostly does not allow for searching Tibetan text. For example, even the very popular Adobe PDF system has trouble with these things. For this reason, we made and use our own software for presenting Tibetan text. One of the special features of our software is that it is the only software in the world aware of all of the details of Tibetan text formatting. Another feature is that has exceptional search capabilities for Tibetan text. Our TibetD Reader is like Adobe Acrobat except that it handles Tibetan text with all of its specialized requirements, perfectly. This gives you a remarkable tool for working with Tibetan text.
Evaluation Electronic Dictionaries and Reference Works:
|Windows: Download a package containing samples of the following three dictionaries and one reference work. The files in this package are short samples only of each reference work. For example, there are about 200 entries only out of tens of thousands from each dictionary. The entries have been carefully chosen so that you can get a good feel for the content and quality of the dictionaries. The package also contains a quick guide to the use of the Reader with the dictionaries. The guide will show you how to get started with the Reader and how to get the most out of the dictionaries. It is strongly recommended that you read that guide first after download.|
You will need either TibetDoc or TibetD Reader to read these samples. If you have purchased any of our software previously, you have the software needed already. If not, a copy of the free Reader mentioned (above) is included in the package and you can install and use that.
the Windows evaluation package.
|Macintosh: We do have Macintosh versions of the three dictionaries shown above and a Reader programmed for the Macintosh. However, we do not have a free Reader for the Macintosh nor are there evaluation versions of the dictionaries and reference works for the Macintosh.|
|Handheld and PDA devices: Download samples of the three dictionaries Illuminator, Sarat Chandra Das, and Geshe Chodrak Dictionaries in TomeRaider format. The files are compressed into zip format. Unzip them, then all you need to use them is a copy of TomeRaider software from Proporta (free, trial versions of the software are available).|
