Recently, the computer program WExEd was developed within the WebALT project. It enables one to create and edit interactive mathematics exercises that can be automatically translated to and subsequently played in different languages (currently English, Spanish, Finnish, Swedish and Italian). It makes use of OpenMath, a standard for encoding the semantics of mathematical objects in XML, and software developed within WebALT. WExEd does not only encode the mathematics of the exercise in OpenMath but also the text. This is possible because, in general, mathematics exercises are built from a well defined and relatively small set of words. In this paper we give a presentation of WExEd.
