Working on FreeDict (translating dictionaries) and OCTC (multilingual, partly parallel text corpus). Both encoded in the TEI, which is my third major current research topic.

I may be a bit of an evangelist, in the good, non-biblical sense: my recent obsessions and topics for evangelism include (a) creating open-content platforms for collaboration on developing, extending and usefully mixing language resources, with a special focus on minority languages, and (b) opening these platforms for use in academic curricula, as a formal basis for student achievements -- in other words, I want both FreeDict and OCTC to benefit from student work and, at the same time, to be able to give back something more than just satisfaction. Which is probably why I am creating this page -- thanks, Jimmy.
