​Oxford University Press launches Hindi online dictionary as part of OGL prgramme

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.

Oxford University Press (OUP) has announced the launch of the Hindi online dictionary, as part of the Oxford Global Languages (OGL) programme from Oxford Dictionaries. 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.

Hindi is the 9th language to become part of the OGL programme, which has led to the development of a Hindi-Hindi online dictionary. The Hindi site will be supported by a Language Champion who will provide strategic advice and help grow awareness of the initiative. Dr Poonam Nigam Sahay, Associate Professor at Ranchi University, is the Hindi Language Champion.

Sivaramakrishnan V, Managing Director, Oxford University Press India, said, “The development of a dictionary website for Hindi will help increase awareness and access for the language, not just in India but everywhere else where learners and speakers of Hindi exist.”

He added, “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.”

Dr Poonam Nigam Sahay, OGL Hindi Language Champion and Associate Professor at Ranchi University, said, “Including Hindi in the [OGL] repertoire would undoubtedly enrich the language and lend a solid support to its fast and phenomenal development.”
