TitleTermania – Free On-Line Dictionary Portal
AbstractTermania, a free on-line dictionary portal with integrated dictionary browsing and editing tools is being developed by Amebis software company from Kamnik, Slovenia, in cooperation with Trojina, Institute for Applied Slovene Studies. It provides an interface for dictionary browsing and a simple but reasonably versatile on-line dictionary editing tool. The portal is intended for general public users with no specialized computer or lexicographic knowledge, but with an interest to share terminological or general language knowledge, either by offering translations in a bilingual or multilingual environment or providing definitions in a monolingual context.
The portal is intended to serve as the central terminology data and opinion exchange node for Slovene terminology. Therefore, a discussion forum will be included in the portal and a possibility to comment on and evaluate each particular entry. Internationalization of the portal is foreseen by providing languagespecific interface for all widely used languages. General policy for the use of dictionary data on and off the portal is determined by the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike licence but also other licences can be used, according to users' preference.
