What makes Oxford Dictionaries unique?

Our language knowledge

Oxford Dictionaries is home to more than 250 specialists who are constantly researching languages as they change and develop. We deliver the results of our daily research straight to you in the format you choose.

Dynamic lexical data

Our lexicographers and technologists work together to take advantage of new technologies as they emerge. New data models have enabled us to transform static dictionary data into dynamic language information that is adaptable, linkable, and easy to use. Our Lexical Engine and Platform (LEAP) enables multiple links and new connections across language data.

Global languages

We want speakers of every language to be able to share the digital experiences that are available to speakers of English and the other major languages. 

We set up Oxford Global Languages (OGL) to provide a place where individuals and communities can collaborate to build digital resources for languages around the world.
