      TRANSLATE Vs FUZZY TRANSLATE :

 
 
 

Translate:
Translate tries to find the closest match to the word entered.

Fuzzy Translate :
This search tries to match up words and tries to guess the words that you might be interested in. Instead of relying on matching the exact word entered, it looks for words that are similar to, sound like, or embed words like the one entered. This can be used when a simple translate does not yield positive results.
Work on Fuzzy translate is ongoing and additional features will be added, as and when the algorithm is refined.
If you are a software pundit, or if you have done any work on pattern matching and sound's like algorithms, please feel free to help the site editors on this end.

       CONTIBUTE A KONKANI WORD TO THE DICTIONARY :

 
 
 

Contributor Name:
This is essential to keep track of the contributors to the dictionary. Ensure that you use the same name every time you submit a word and a meaning. Your name is the only field that helps track the contributors.

Konkani Word:
Enter the konkani word in roman script (preferably in ITRANS format). If you do not know ITRANS then don't worry, enter the word the way you would write it in roman letters.
For eg: megele = mine
Just enter 'megele' in the konkani word field.
The editors will sort out the ITRANS stuff for you at their leisure. In most cases the ITRANS words will very nearly be the same as the logical way of writing a konkani word in roman script.
To learn more about ITRANS rules, click on the 'Script' or 'WordIndex' links on the top bar. Basic ITRANS rules can be learnt in a few minutes, as it is one of the most logical transliteration formats.

English meaning:
Enter what the word filled out in the 'Konkani Word' field means. If you need more than just a single word, don't hesitate, go ahead.
Write as concise a meaning as possible. 2 or 3 english words are generally enough to explain most konkani words.

Note:
The submitted words will appear in the main dictionary only after they have been reviewed by the editor.
