Problem: Wiktionary is a knowledge silo; its content is effectively unavailable to potential users except via the web-based interface. It is rather difficult to search or make additional use of the content via search engines, third-party software, or even as a spell-checker database despite its wide acclaim in the linguistic's academic community as a massive resource without peer.
Who would benefit: Readers, writers.
Standard dictionary dump
Create DICT database output as part of regularly scheduled database dumps.
More comments: Do something small, now. Parsing dumps to produce dict-style-jargon files is simple and quick. Building on that to produce DICT databases, expose a DICT server, and eventually producing standard, reliable data in formats consumable for spelling dictionaries, education dumps, translation dictionaries, and more are really just minor investments to a readily expandable pile of value-added products. The most important element is to do something, anything, to leverage one of the more valuable WMF assets.
You probably need to generally flesh out this proposal. It's not immediately obvious to everyone what it is, what would happen and how it would benefit readers and editors. For example, not all Wikimedians know what an API is. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 15:18, 16 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
