Abstract: In this paper, a system for the automatic creation of parallel bilingual electronic books is presented. The system allows creating e-books, where source sentences are linked with the corresponding target sentences. Users can read in the original, and clicking on a given sentence, the corresponding sentence in the target language is shown. Then she or he can continue reading the translation and coming back to the original version clicking in a target language sentence. The source language book is automatically aligned at the sentence level with the target language translation of the book. This system is not using a machine translation system, but instead, it shows the published translation of the original work in the given target language. We have created several bilingual e-books using classic novels and its translations in the public domain, but the same system can be used for any book, provided you have the rights for the original and the translation. The system is aimed to people willing to read in the original, having a mid-high level of the source language. We also present the process of creation of bilingual dictionaries from free lexical resources. Both resources, the bilingual e-book and the bilingual dictionary can be of great help for readers willing to read books in the original version.
