The Buddhist Institute of Cambodia has released a new version of Chuon Nath’s Khmer to Khmer Dictionary. Visit the link below to find out more – this version should work with both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. Thanks to Sokny Sor for his work! The program is Java based, so should be multi-platform (Windows and Linux, but supposedly not with Mac yet)
There is a new release of our offline Lexique Pro dictionary that is available for download (Updated 8/13/10 27,693 words and phrases).
The SBBIC dictionary now includes the KhmerOS glossary – Special thanks to a the Open Forum of Cambodia and NiDA for allowing us to import the glossary. This offline dictionary was compiled from the SBBIC Khmer Collaborative Online Dictionary at http://dictionary.sbbic.org Please visit the online dictionary and contribute new terms and or correct any errors so that they can be included in future releases of the dictionary.
We have just found a backend that can support a collaborative online dictionary and have started to input data into it. If you want to poke around feel free – but just remember it is in its very early stages. After looking around the web for a backend we first landed on phpmyFAQ. But after some use it became clear that phpmyFAQ just wasn’t made to handle so many data entries. So we have now switched to MediaWiki. And although it is not designed specifically for an online collaborative dictionary, we feel it will work great once we customize it a bit. Currently you can register at the site and to add a word search for the word you want. But as we said, we are releasing this very early so that everyone can have input. You can also look at the current definitions and edit if there is an error.
Please, give us your thoughts and ideas.
Also we will be looking for editors, those who approve new entries into the dictionary – so if you are interested please contact us or comment on this post and give us your contact information and we will be in touch.
If you have a large amount of words you would like to input into the dictionary, let us know and we can bulk import them so you don’t have to do it one by one. Thanks!
