Project idea[edit]

The interface and functionality inherited from Wikipedia do not fit the specific character and needs of the dictionary. Actually it is a serious limiting factor there. Switching from the plain-text editing to something like object-oriented database editing paradigm with fully customizable views and standardized formats would substantially improve the quality of the dictionaries, simplify the interoperability between different language projects, accelerate and automate the development of the smaller projects. The change implies serious transformations in the project's engine.

Project goals[edit]

Improve the quality of the Wiktionaries, simplify the interoperability between different language projects, accelerate and automate the development of the smaller projects.
