PanLex development


This is the site for PanLex developers. Is that you? Yes, if you develop PanLex content, PanLex technology, or PanLex-powered applications.

What we do

Content development

This is the work of discovering, documenting, and editing billions of translations among the words of the languages of the world.

Technology development

This is the work of improving and documenting the design and infrastructure of the PanLex database and of its human and program interfaces.

Application development

Applications can query the PanLex database through the PanLex API. PanLex also makes monthly dumps of data available for use by applications.

PanLex team members, interns, volunteers, partners, and unaffiliated developers all do PanLex development. This site aims to provide the documentation they need. If you are a PanLex developer, please comment so we can make the site work better for you.

Becoming a PanLex developer

Not yet a PanLex developer, but want to become one? This site has information for you. We invite you to study the documentation here. Please let us know what changes would make this site more effective.

Other PanLex sites

The main PanLex website provides information about the PanLex project for everybody, not only PanLex developers. It includes links to PanLex-based applications available for public use.
