I have to catalog a lot of foreign language materials at work – and I speak 1 language (typical American). So I use a tool called Babylon (not a freebie) to help me translate bits of text as I search through OCLC for the right copy.

Well, now the makers of Babylon are trying something new – they have a wiki-dictionary – a wiktionary, a wikitionary … hmmm – anyway they have a new site LingoZ where anyone can add entries to the dictionary. Sounds like a neat idea and helpful for those stranger terms and jargon that we can’t find definitions to elsewhere.

    Looks like “wiktionary” is already in usage:

    http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Main_Page

    But, yes, LingoZ is a neat idea! Maybe neat enough for MGorman to vent spleen over.
