Rave reviews for Freelex / Mātāpuna lexicography system

24 12 2010

Some things just take time – especially recognition.

My Free and Open Source Freelex / Mātāpuna Dictionary Writing System was just reviewed by Oumar Bah in Language Documentation and Conservation. (Download the PDF of the article).

Bah writes:

It is a DWS much like Toolbox, iLex or TshwaneLex, but uninke the others, it is entirely web-based.  This means that its interface can be opened with any usual browser, which is a huge advantage if we consider that most users are now familiar with the Internet.  Furthermore, its network feature makes it well-suited for collaborative dictionary projects, either in a Local Area Network or on the Internet …

Matapuna is a dictionary tool I warmly recommend, especially for collaborative small or medium scale projects with little funding…
