Oxford University Press to launch Hindi online dictionary

In a move to build up a Hindi-based customer base, Oxford University Press (OUP) today announced the launch of the Hindi online dictionary.

Hindi is the ninth language to become part of the Oxford Global Languages (OGL) programme which has led to the development of a Hindi-Hindi online dictionary, OUP said in a release.

Stating that the Hindi site will be supported by a 'Language Champion', who will provide strategic advice and help grow awareness of the initiative, it said Dr Poonam NigamSahay, Associate Professor at Ranchi University, is the Hindi Language Champion.

OGL is one of the "most significant" projects of OUP which aims to build dictionaries and lexicographical resources for around 100 of the world's languages and to make them available online.

"A digital platform for languages not just provides vast storage of language data that is accessible anytime, but also helps in the development of the language" Oxford University Press India Managing Director Sivaramakrishnan V said.
