  • Problem: Wiktionaries offer some definitions but there are many ways to describe a meaning, and the actual wiktionary interface doesn't make it easy to display definitions from other dictionaries. Some are mentioned as references but they are not accessible in Wiktionary.
  • Who would benefit: Wiktionary readers
  • Proposed solution: Many dictionaries are already in Wikisource and we can use them to offer more definitions. A dedicated transclusion may help harvesting automatically entries with a specific tagging in the dictionaries hosted in Wikisources. They could come from several Wikisources, to be display in several Wiktionaries. It could be a new tab next to "Article" and "Talk", named "Dictionaries".
  • More comments: Some dictionaries are already properly tagged; for the others, it could be a good opportunity to do it, so that they can more easily be reused in open source projects.
