Question Software to create dictionaries

I am a linguist.
And often, I make word lists for people I teach. It would be cool, though, if I could find a program designed for this - to create dictionaries.
A program, where I could add words, their explanations and a few notes/examples - and then export it to some standard format. I am sure I could knock it together myself if I beefed up my Python & GTK skills, but I suspect - in this free software world - that it is much more likely that someone has already done something along these lines.
It would be immensely cool. Anyone heard of this?

Thank you, but as far as I can see, these applications only allow for using dictionaries, not for creating them. Or did I miss something?


create, dictionary
