Well in your quest, you might find this site useful.
Has some flat files from and to various languages, might save you some
work if you decide to have a real go at this. Still no graphics
involved but still a pretty useful resource.

>>> Has anyone developed any vocabulary/ language learning stacks in Rev? Seems like an apt application for the tool, but I didn't see anything in revOnLine. Picture dictionary type things with rollovers for different languages? Remember those First Thousand Words books with contextualized drawings showing vocabulary for the kitchen, barnyard, garden, etc.?

There are some things online, but nothing of particularly good quality. Good, coherent artwork would be a real issue, even with the abundance of free clip-art online, it would be fragmented and of questionable quality.
