Online Sindhi English Dictionary

The South Asia Language Resource Center at the University of Chicago have funded a project allowing for a Sindhi English Dictionary on the web. The site also has an online Sindhi script keyboard so people can type in words in Sindhi to look up the relevant English translation.

I found it a bit difficult to look up words by typing in, but thankfully all the Sindhi letters are on the website so one can just click on a particular alphabet and see all the words starting with it on a separate page. There's also a 'word of the day' feature like other online dictionaries.

The project was developed in collaboration between the Center for Research in Urdu Language Processing (CRULP) at the National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences in Lahore and Dr Jennifer Cole at the Univeristy of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Good stuff and definitely worth a look.

I recently discovered a site with a bunch of dictionaries for South Asian languages; and since I like their Persian and Urdu ones, I am confident their Sindhi one will be at least better than the useless word lists we usually get online:
