Initially the Multilingual Forestry Dictionary project started with the computer courses given at Rottenburg University of Applied Forestry. It was a part of a Government promotion programme. The project had didactical aims; it was not a →terminology project. The CD-ROM Multilingual Forestry Dictionary is the "torso" of a →dictionary and Computer Based Training (CBT) tools. With both parts of the programme it is possible to show the opportunities of computer-aided learning. The programme itself is multilingual, the user is free in choosing the user-, source- and target languages. At the moment it is available in German, English, French, Spanish, Dutch and Finnish. The concept is to use the potentialities of the multimedia personal computer, that means text, sound, pictures, video (visual effects). It evolved from a computer project to a →dictionary project.
