Partnering on OmegaWiki development
Since August 2013, DictionaryForMIDs and OmegaWiki formed a collaboration to create OmegaWiki monolingual, bilingual and multilingual dictionaries that can be used with DictionaryForMIDs' Android, cell phone ( via JAVA) and PC applications. We believe that this partnership will be beneficial, not only for both projects, but also for the Open Source community.
OmegaWiki's database will enrich DictionaryForMIDs dictionary resources while DictionaryForMIDs will help the OmegaWiki data to be reused, which is one of OmegaWiki's goal.
