When you first launch Parley the Start Page welcomes you.
At first the Start Page is empty, once you opened some vocabulary collections, it shows you the ones you worked with most recently.
A vocabulary collection is a file that contains words and their translations into other languages or other pairs of words and sentences that you want to memorize. The words are organized in lessons.
To start practicing, click one of the vocabulary collections in the list. You are taken to the practice setup.
Note that a small Editor Icon appears to the right of the document name when you move the mouse over it. The Editor Icon lets you open the collection in the editor instead of practice mode.
To edit a collection, click on the Editor Icon on its right hand side.
If you'd like to start your own collection of vocabulary, click on Create a New Collection.
You can also open a collection if you have it on your computer already but it's not in the list.
The last button on the Start Page offers you to download vocabulary collections made by others. When you've created a file that you'd like to share with others, you can easily upload it from the editor.
Parley comes with different themes, you can switch to a different graphical style in the settings. For further information, see Configure Parley.
