English is a global language. Our goal is to create a lively, hands-on, multi-media English dictionary. One that helps you learn new words. More than any other dictionary, ODE helps you understand how words are used, along with international nuances in pronunciation and usage.
We are always welcoming two types of editors into our team:
Dictionary editors -- Ideally you have a high level of English language knowledge. Most of our editors are writers, English teachers, linguists, proof readers, etc.
Image editors -- Help us find clear and descriptive images for the Open Dictionary of English. Image editors first search the web for open source artwork. If nothing suitable is found, they take and upload their own images.
