About

In this project, we present our effort in order to create an extendible electronic dictionary basically for the need of using it for the machine translation purposes of our ongoing research project (“Machine Translation from Turkish to Turkish Sign Language and the Avatar Animation” granted by “The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey” - TUBITAK 1003 grant no: 114E263). With the shortcomings of the existing resources, the need for an interactive platform where the authenticated users could add new terms or update existing ones by discussing with the community is essential for the faster development of TID studies. The platform includes the semantic information and the linguistic categories of every sign. Every sign is uniquely represented and attached to a unique entry. The signs are represented with video clips or 3-D animations. TID is still an evolving and growing language, which grows the need for a dynamic platform rather than a static dictionary.
