On my conlangers shop, I make cute graphic tees that relate to conlangs. (At the moment, it is basically just Esperanto because it used to be called “Mojoseco”). If you like Áya Dan and also happen to enjoy one of these t-shirts, hopefully you’ll pick one up! When you have expendable income, of course. I get about 20% of the t-shirt sales back, so it is just a little something to help out with paying for webhosting, and maybe to motivate me to make YouTube videos for my various conlang channels. (wink wink nudge nudge) ;P
I think that it would be nice to build a dictionary that has translations between many conlangs and natlangs, for use as a single application.
And, let me know if this has already been done, because I don’t want to reinvent the wheel or anything.
I’ve set up a GitHub project here:
in hopes that I can get some help with this casual project.
Mainly, I’ve pulled dictionaries from around the ‘web, and they need to be parsed. Most of these dictionaries aren’t made with the idea of parsability in mind, only being read by a human. Scraping data from documents like these is always a pain, and I wouldn’t want to do it all solo.
Additionally, it’s always good to have another set of eyes looking over the design so that features that might be really important are added ahead of time, or a bad design is pointed out. I haven’t designed any databases in a while, but I’m hoping what I have makes some sense.
Finfine, after a dictionary has been compiled and made available to everybody as an CopyFree asset, it would be nice to also build some CopyFree dictionary utilities – for web, desktop, and mobile.
I translated a small dungeon crawler into Esperanto last night. Its page is here on Áya Dan under the Esperanto pages.
If you want to translate some open source games and have them hosted on Áya Dan, or you’re hosting them elseware and want me to post up a link, please let me know.
Man, I love conlangs. They’re so addicting. But there’s one problem…
