When you first launch Parley the Dashboard welcomes you.
At first the Dashboard 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 units.
To start practicing, click with the mouse button on the Practice Anyway box on one of the vocabulary collection names in the list. You are taken to the practice overview.
Note that a small Delete icon appears bottom on the left of the collection item. This lets you remove the collection from the list.
If you'd like to start your own collection of vocabulary, press on the button.
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 Dashboard 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.
