Oxford Global Languages

As part of the Oxford Global Languages (OGL) programme we regularly launch new resources in other languages. OGL aims to build dictionaries and lexical resources for 100 languages, many of which are under-represented in the digital landscape. For the first time, large quantities of quality lexical information for these languages will be created, collected, and made available to speakers, learners, and digital developers.

We currently have OGL sites in isiZulu, Northern Sotho, Malay, Urdu, Setswana, Indonesian, Romanian, Latvian, Swahili, Hindi, Tamil, Gujarati, Tatar, isiXhosa, Southern Quechua, Tajik, Tok Pisin, Turkmen, Telugu, and Greek.
