What is it?
The first and most important thing: currently this is a personal side project, a prototype of an idea. It might have downtimes, it might disappear, it's structure may change. On the other hand, I'm using it daily, so I plan to keep maintaining it.
Before I started, I had two things in mind:
- How could I make translation data from Wiktionary easier to access?
- I wanted to learn more about the structure of Wiktionary and the project itself
Kamus dictionary tries to help a user to find translations from Wiktionary. It reads the relevant pages from Wiktionary and presents translation information in an easier way, filtering out what's not needed for the translations.
As an example, try to find the translation from the English word "table" to Catalan, using the Wiktionary page or the Kamus page.
I hope that Kamus might help some users to use Wiktionary and hopefully, improve Wiktionary (finding mistakes, adding translations, etc.).
Latest imports (autocompletion)
Read latest imports for information on when the latest import was for the autocompletion "Word" field.
When loading a translation, the data is fetched from Wiktionary in real time. Therefore, if you edit Wiktionary and reload the page on Kamus you will see the changes in real time.
Kamus dictionary supports keyboard shortcuts, so there is no need to move your hands away from the keyboard.
- Alt + W: focus to write a Word
- Alt + C: Change from/to language
- Tab can be used to move between fields
More languages are coming
Currently, Kamus offer to translate from English, Catalan and Spanish to any language listed. More languages coming, if you have any preference let me know (contact details at the bottom of the page). I have some ideas for how to add "from any to any" language instead of having to implement languages manually, but I'm still evaluating it.
Cookies are used in order to save the "From" and "To" languages.
