I can't see what is the point of having this kind of project.Just ask the publisher to reprint that Taiwanese English dict 1200 pages will be good enough for everyone.

Hi there xr,

I see you posted a link to the Minnan Forum on one of your pages. Thanks for helping to spread knowledge of this Forum. Good luck with your project - I'm sorry that my Hokkien isn't good enough to be of any help in this case.

Regards,
Sim.

Hi SimL,

There are other ways to help, spread the news about the project, tell us any problem in the interface. If you notice misspelled words, wrong definition etal.

But thanks for the greeting.

This database will also be used to produce Firefox dictionary in Minnan for Firefox users. Example, one wants to read articles at http://zh-min-nan.wikipedia.org, whatever the words the mouse points at, if an entry is available, the definition will be shown.

thanks,
xr
