(~20 Euros (files to learn 5 languages from German included))
Various training modes, e.g. flashing (slide show), time limit for response, hangman. Random flashcard flipping, direct and inverted question modes. Import function. Text must fit into a single line :-(

Flashcard format: one field, four further fields for translations (one-line text only :-( ), one sound file per flashcard.
Training: questions can be reversed.
Training modes: Q/A, (customizable) time limit, slideshow, three-options multiple choice ("Blitzraten", mouse clicks), hangman, "Quickklick" (similar to memory games: click when a translation of 0a word that had appeared previously comes up).
Selective learning: only three options; learn all flashcards, or those with less than X points (score), or "marked" flashcards. Note: ( a ) Score addition/subtraction after each hit/wrong can be customized. ( b ) Flashcards can be marked by hand or using a filter (score, search occurrence, initial letter, word length).
More: Character map. Floating keyboard image (useful for odd languages).
Sort cards. Print vocabulary lists (with exclusion filters). Simple statistic data. Import/export.
Setup: it can only be installed into a first level directory :-( No uninstall.
Bugs: setup asked for floppy diskette (!). Under NT it generated an "Exception EConvert error". Sometimes slow in loading training sessions.
User-friendliness: mouse is a must :-( Fancy, colorful interface.
Notes: Parts of source code in common with TreeVok, since this title appears in some dialog box (a typo).
Not bad, but it could be more user-friendly; it is also too expensive.
