.gls File Extension

Developer: Babylon
File type: Babylon Glossary File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .gls. Files with the file extension .gls can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .gls files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .gls file?

The .gls file extension is more commonly known as a glossary file used by Babylon Glossary Builder. Glossaries are helpful in displaying definitions of terms as well as displaying word translations. Now, glossaries can be created with the use of a glossary builder and in fact, glossaries are easy to build with the use of software like Babylon Glossary builder. These glossary files, definitions and the term translations are called .gls files. These files are helpful in storing references for dictionaries. As a matter of fact, these files can not only hold text content, but also digital photos, so this means users can create encyclopedias with this software. Users need this software installed in their systems before they can open, edit and modify the content of these GLS files, because the creation and modification of files saved in the .gls format can only be done by accessing certain features that are integrated into Babylon Glossary Builder.

how to open a .gls file?

Launch a .gls file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .gls file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .gls files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .gls file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .gls file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .gls files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .gls. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
