Digital Dictionaries of South Asia
The mission of the Digital Dictionaries of South Asia (DDSA) program is to make available the highest quality electronic dictionaries for South Asian languages as free public services via the Internet. DDSA encompasses languages of the current nation-states of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. A panel of language experts involved in the program has identified key dictionaries and selected at least one multilingual dictionary for each of the twenty-six modern literary languages of South Asia. For the more frequently taught languages, panelists also chose at least one monolingual dictionary for digitization.
