given to testers who have authored print or online dictionaries, but

5. previous testing experience, if applicable
6. statement of approx. how much time you can devote to

Beta testing does not include any monetary compensation, however you will
receive free copies of the software, and, if you author materials to
accompany the software, you have the option of self-publishing,
publishing through a publisher of your choice, or approaching us about
publishing your materials - in other words, you may be able to make some
money selling anything you produce in the process of beta testing, at
your discretion. For more information, contact
