Preferably with these features:
Support for multiple non-latin scripts (including IPA, MdC, Egyptian transliteration, Coptic (all dialects), Akkadian transliteration, Meroitic transliteration, Greek etc ).
Definable sort order (for example, an abjad-like order).
Field for Attestations.
Field for notes.
Multiple lexeme fields per record (transliteration, IPA, reconstruction, etymological ancestors and/or descendants)
Ability to search and sort across or within fields (so a database-like functionality)
I'd rather not generate in a document format or a spreadsheet, since those formats are cumbersome for assembling a corpus from random sources.
Tall order I think, but I'm hoping there is something out there that might work!
SIL Fieldworks FLEx (and it is free).
You are able to use multiple language scripts in many fields (Though in a set of subfields. Mixed-script text in a single field proper is not supported).
The tool auto generates dictionaries, and has a built in interlinear parser/translation tool for morphological analysis and explication.
It is highly configurable, though I'd love a bit more flexibility in a few areas - particularly the ability to add new rows into the interlinear translation pages for extra data.
