Wikiwords is the collaborative project to create a dictionary of all terms in all languages announced one month ago. A bold project! Here's a sampling from the enthusiastic response of the community to the initiative:

"Wikiwords - all words, all languages. This IS great!" - Osmar Jardim, Brazil

"Looks good, so far. Will it get to be like a wiki dictionary in different languages with the words/concepts cross-referenced into other languages? [Answer: Yes] That would be da bomb." - Andrés Pacheco, Argentina

" Very ambitious, and I dare say, courageous. " - Alaa Zeineldine, USA

"My first impression is good... Keep up the good work!" - coeurnelle, Belgium

"Wow!!! Wiki!" - Roomy Naqvy, India

" looks like a good idea which might be very useful for translators!" - dgmaga, Germany

"Finally! Ever since I saw the banner ad for WikiWords about... two weeks ago (?), I've been waiting impatiently for its release... Cheers & congratulations!" - Maria Teresa Taylor Oliver, Panama

"I went and tried it out and am crazy about the concept... this will be an amazing resource for many of us - and maybe even some nice publicity... " - Viktoria Gimbe, Canada

"I think it is a wonderful idea... I hope to contribute as much as possible." - MaJo Cerdá, Argentina

"Impressive! An excellent long awaited site/feature... I only wonder how so many people are already aware of the site, judging from the amount of messages already posted in the forums there and the volume of glossaries already imported..." - Evert DELOOF-SYS, Belgium

" Really great! It was always my dream to work on such system or data base... do you need beta-testers? Maybe I can be a good one." - Jarema, Ukraine

If you have not yet visited the Wikiwords site, please check it out now (while it is still very much in the formative stages!)

I have been collaborating May 25, 2006

And I habe been really enjoying it.

There is a suggestion. Would it be possible to sort the entries out in alphabetical order? I have stopped collaborating so often because I can never remember which concepts I have already added and not always I have time to go through them one by one.

Does anyone know how to do it?

Thank you
