About LugatLugat – complex of Kazakh dictionaries. Lugat – non-commercial public domain with the aim of proposing free dictionary service.
History of Lugat starts from April 2012. Initially, the idea was only creating Kazakh-English online dictionary, which we had done so. However, in autumn of 2012, new explanatory dictionary of Kazakh language added. Afterwards, in the beginning of 2013, one by one added spelling dictionary, regional dictionary and dictionary of synonyms. At the end of 2013 Kazakh-Russian dictionary added. All in all, in at the start of the year 2014 Lugat consisted of 8 dictionaries with total vocabulary of 350 00 phrases.
In summer 2014, crowdsourcing platform was the new idea of the team. Crowdsourcing platform meant that any user of the service can add new word or phrase. Basically, now users became moderators. This decision is helping a lot. First reason, two new dictionaries appeared on the service. Arabic and Turkish dictionaries are creating by the help of users. These moderators are responsible for the content of the dictionaries. Second reason of it, with the help of crowdsourcing platform total vocabulary of Lugat reached 534 000.
