Ọrọèdè is a searchable English to Yorùbá   dictionary, based on the Princeton University project Wordnet.  Ọrọèdè is composed of a MySQL conversion of Prolog files of Wordnet.  Initially the interface and logic were written in procedural PHP, but currently work is underway to port it to an Object Oriented Framework using the Model-View-Controller layout.

Ọrọèdẹ is currently in the testing phase, thus no downloadable files are available yet for those who want to install it, but an online demonstration is available at SourceForge.net , hopefully with the community support it will become a full release by end of year 2006. We welcome feedback from users regarding the accuracy of entries and the features available.

Ọrọèdẹ is planned to be released in a Macromedia Flash format so it can be installed on home computers, providing those who do not have internet access its use. This release will follow the full release of the internet version, within the first quarter of 2007.
