A Multilingual Dictionary for the Children of our World[edit]




OmegaWiki (http://OmegaWiki.org) is a project developing an open content Wiki style dictionary in every language of the world, working with the University of Bamberg (http://www.uni-bamberg.de) to identify relevant word lists and develop needed applications. We are specifically working on a dictionary for children, to be included on the OLPC laptops.

One Laptop Per Child [OLPC] is an initiative to mass-produce ultra-low-cost ($100), durable laptops and to distribute them throughout the world to improve education for millions of children. The laptops are a unique learning tool, created expressly for children living in the world's most remote environments.

You can help

Donate a few minutes of work to improve the translations and definitions of 10 words. By contributing a bit of time you can reach out to millions of children in the world.


To participate, send an e-mail to:

s.cretella@gmail.com


and list the target languages you can translate into – all languages are welcome. You will receive an e-mail with instructions about how to help us and which words to work on.

Thank you so much for your help!

p.s. Would you like to know my personal dream? Having that dictionary, or at least a huge part of it, ready in many languages for Christmas ... it is just three months ahead of us ... can you make it as well your dream?
