This project aims at building an Open Source (GPL) wordlist to be used in public dictionaries for both online and local use. This dictionary's main focus is to present a means to translate a very broad range of English terms to Arabic. This wordlist/dictionary's focus is a general one and is not specific to any field.
- Categories, per term, need to be added.
- 'Z' is 100% complete.
- A comprehensive english/english dictionary - www.onelook.com
- An english/arabic and arabic/english dictionary - www.almisbar.com
- An arabic/english dictionary - www.alburaq.net
- A write-up on how to integrate this wordlist into a DICT environment/protocol.
