Legal Māori Resource Hub

22 10 2015

One of my “day jobs” is providing lexicographical software development for a number of dictionaries around the place.  One project using my Freelex software that’s recently been launched is the Legal Māori Resource Hub, by Māmari Stephens at the Victoria University Law department.

Māmari recently gave a talk about the lexicon, corpus, and resource hub at the National Digital Forum conference this year.

I’m really happy to have been involved in providing the underlying system on which this is built.




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…
