Logos Group, a world leader in language solutions, offers Dicologos, a unique on-line resource of indigenous languages and dialects. It is the largest public dictionary in the world and gives the meaning of millions of words in up to 200 languages.
Consider a utopia based on the assumption that if we were all able to create a language - or better still many languages - why couldn’t we all produce a dictionary, or rather The dictionary, to include them all? The unique features of this ever-growing, "living" dictionary would mean that it could never be compiled by a conventional editor, but only by a community of translators.
Dicologos is the result of an attempt to realize such a dictionary - freely available, the fruit of a collaboration among over 6,000 volunteers with hundreds of mother tongues, each enthusiastic about his native language. This talk describes the history and present scope of the project.
