Indian Languages Programme
Oxford Global Languages (OGL) is a major initiative from Oxford Dictionaries which aims to build lexical resources for 100 of the world’s languages. Thanks to OGL, large quantities of quality lexical information for a wide range of languages are now available in a single, linked repository for use by speakers, learners, and developers. OGL aims to transform the experience of millions of people worldwide by making their language available in digital form.
As a subset of the OGL programme, we have embarked upon an exciting, new programme to accelerate the growth of our Indian language content - the Indian Languages Programme.
Through investment in people and expertise, Oxford aims to create lexical data in major Indian languages. This content will provide resources for third parties, such as government bodies, developers, and educational organizations, to make products and services available in people’s native languages.
We have already made significant headway with creating and developing lexical content for Hindi and Tamil, building and training teams of editors and language specialists and creating original content that reflects how these languages are actually used today. We are now focussed on building our resources in Telugu, and we are looking for the people who will help us do this - people who are eager to learn how to create bilingual lexical content that enables rich, diverse language communication in the digital age. Could this be you?
We are looking for editors and linguists with a deep knowledge and love of Telugu and high fluency in English to join the programme. The English-Telugu content you create will directly contribute to Oxford’s goal of unlocking the power of language for learning and for life.
