When you first attempt to open a lexicon database in Lexique Pro, the Configure Lexicon Wizard appears. This will take you through a number of pages where you tell Lexique Pro about how your database is configured and how you would like it to be displayed.

You will need to specify which languages are used for glosses and definitions.
