Hi Javid, If you have a parallel corpus, you can use an alignment tool such as Giza++ or fast-aligner to get word alignments. You can run the alignment in both directions to get a bi-directional dictionary. If your corpus is comparable (which I understand as not completely parallel, but I may be wrong here), then a tool like hungalign can help extract the parallel sentences, which you can then use for building your dictionary. HTH, Emad
