English: This presentation descibes the work I have been doing working for the Cornish Language Office in creating a new version of the Standard Written Form of Cornish dictionary website published by Akademi Kernewek, the Cornish language academy.

It will describe the features required in the new version of the website, and how open source software in Python was used to process the XML data exported from the previous version, and make improvements within the data to support the new website.

I describe our collaboration with Dewi Bryn Jones and Delyth Prys of the Language Technologies Unit@Canolfan Bedwyr in Bangor University, using their software Maes T which has been used previously for Welsh dictionaries including the terminology portal Termau Cymru among other resources. Maes T now also serves as a backend for the Cornish dictionary website.

Some of the Welsh dictionaries and resources based on Maes T have made use of Wikimedia and/or Wikipedia content, and we have applied this for the Cornish terminology entries.

The dictionary website is located at
