14.) What is the Personal Vocabulary?
The Personal Vocabulary or PV is like your own online "notebook" where all important words you want to review are stored. This PV can be accessed anytime using any computer with Internet connection. Cleverlearn's tools and services use the PV in their respective applications, storing every word you learn into one big vocabulary warehouse.
15.) What is Synchronization? How do I synchronize?
When you synchronize, the words in your PV are copied into the Cleverlearn server. Synchronization makes it easier for you to review your words using any computer that has Internet connection. They are stored - just like the way you write down lessons in your notebook at school - giving you a handy reference that you can access online, through Clicktionary, or using our other tools and services.
For instance, when you travel or use a computer without a Clicktionary installed, you can still check the words in your PV under Your Vocabulary section in Cleverlearn Website. Synchronization allows you access to your updated list of PV words.
To synchronize your Clicktionary, go to the PV area. Click on the Synchronize button at the bottom of the window. You can also right-click on the Clicktionary icon in your system tray and choose Synchronize from the menu. You need to be online in order for the synchronization to work.
16.) Do I need to be online to Synchronize?
Yes, because your local Personal Vocabulary will communicate with your Personal Vocabulary on the web. This ensures that in both your Clicktionary and web Personal Vocabulary are always updated and identical.
