(sorted by importance)

  • Possibility to mark the most frequently used word if there are several synonyms in a DM. Right now, always the most recently added synonym is shown in the Relations. Maybe call it "best translation" and color-code it. Example: Expression:Adverb. "Nebenwort" is much less commonly used than "Adverb". Even worse: Expression:Vagina appears as Expression:Fotze (= vulgar synonym), see DefinedMeaning:Schwanz (5473).
  • Links within a definition. For example here it is not absolutely clear what is meant by "property". It could be a possession in general or real estate.
  • Searchable annotations. Example: Searching for しひとめ should take you to Expression:姑, because it's the Hiragana for 姑.
  • Special Page for definitions needing a translation.
  • Some kind of method to perform mass edits. Often necessary when we get new features or change things.
  • Automatically add the annotation "noun" if a grammatical gender is assigned to a word.
  • Link to the female form of a word, for example vampire --> vampiress.
  • (Regularly) Delete all orphaned expressions (i.e. expressions that are not linked to any DM)
  • Word class: Separate indication of general word class (noun, verb, adjective, etc.) and subclass (proper noun, personal pronoun etc.)
  • Get rid of "identical meaning". It causes more problems than it offers solutions.
  • Get rid of incoming relations. Or at least show them differently.
  • Rename DefinedMeaning to Concept. Much clearer.
  • Show the definition when choosing a class. Done Done
  • Make search case sensitive. Done Done


  • Redesign of the user interface. More intuitive, improve the way information is shown. Very difficult, I know.
  • Semi-automatic import of translations from Wikipedia
  • Get rid of SwissProt und UMLS. Our community is way too small to deal with enormous databases like this. Nobody edits them. They're only copies anyway and available elsewhere.
