Thank you! This website was introduced on the Lojban mailing list today and I'm investigating it's use as a dictionary for us. Alyn.post 18:29, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
To best utilize this site, I need to do a batch upload of our current Lojban dictionary. Is batch uploading documented anywhere? Alyn.post 18:26, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
The problem with batch upload is that you need to know, for each Lojban word, to each definition (DefinedMeaning in OmegaWiki jargon) it corresponds. I don't know how your current Lojban dictionary looks, but most of the online dictionaries only specify correspondances between words, without giving the definition. So, for a word with two meanings, it is ambiguous.
If you are able to provide a table which says: "Lojban word XX goes to DM number YY", then we can do batch upload. We have no bot for that, but it can be done with a bit of programming. --Kip 08:18, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
