Kip, do you think there is a need for an API function to get list? Like list of Languages, or list of words for a language? --Hiong3-eng5 (talk) 09:05, 12 June 2013 (CEST)

I don't know, but as long as we don't need it, it's better not to do it.
A list of words might be also too slow to generate for an api (normally, api are supposed to work fast and return a small result). I plan to do an extra page Special:download, where one could generate and download listof words and translations. It would basically show the lists that already have been generated previously (with date) and a button "regenerate", that would then add a query to the job queue of mediawiki. With a job queue we would have the advantage that only one query is executed at a time, so that it does not take too much cpu. If you are interested, you can start workingon that ;-) --Kip (talk) 09:51, 12 June 2013 (CEST)
