1. What is the purpose of Longdo Dict?
    1. Online tools for building collaborative and open bilingual-Thai dictionaries
    2. Search service for existing available dictionary contents
  2. What can be searched here?
  3. From your first purpose, how can the Longdo contents be collaboratively created?
      Through this Longdo website via the contributor/approver mechanism. In short, if you see that Longdo is still missing a certain content, you can contribute it through the Contributor Page. The approver regulary browses the contributed entries, then approve (or reject) them. It's as easy as that.
  4. Why should I contribute to Longdo?
    • Because the next person will not have to search for the meaning of a word again, instead learning from your contributed data.
    • The collaborative dictionary output (which includes your contributed data) will be available under Open Source license. So it should be fair for all contributors.
  5. Thank you our sponsors
    • NII for server and network bandwidth (from the beginning in 2003 to October 2005).
