kasahorow Dictionaries

This project builds on the success of the kasahorow Keyboards project.

The first online kasahorow dictionary was of the Akan language. We now maintain online dictionaries for a few more languages such as:


We then got a boost from PALDO, the Pan-African Living Dictionary Online, a multilingual dictionary project in several African languages(*) initiated by the Kamusi Project. The project used software developed by kasahorow to manage the multilingual content. PALDO included:

  1. 2500-term IT terminology lexicons for 12 languages, supported by IDRC as part of the PALnet initiative

  2. Kinyarwanda - English - Swahili dictionary, supported by the US National Endowment for the Humanities
