What people are saying about the programme

We are working closely with local  language communities to create living dictionaries. Our goal is for users to feel a part of supporting and developing resources for their language.

Many of our languages are supported by local Language Champions, people who understand about language and have a passion for promoting and supporting their own. Some of our OGL websites are also managed by local Language Managers, who work together with Language Champions and with Oxford Dictionaries to make what we do relevant to the communities they serve.


Watch Victor Mojela discuss the importance of the project for the Northern Sotho language.



Dr Khumalo is our Language Champion for the isiZulu living dictionary.
