Why participate?

We want to create the premier free English-Korean dictionary on the Internet, but we can only do it with your help. The same expression sometimes has several different English-Korean translations. Depending on the context in which a Korean term is used, it can have different meanings. We want the English-Korean dictionary to include all these translations and variations of Korean specialist vocabulary. Many of these Korean translations are added by other users, just like you. In order to maintain a high standard and good quality of the Korean dictionary any new English or Korean words added to the English-Korean dictionary need to be verified. Even though a Korean translation has not yet been approved, it still shows up in searches. Until a new suggestion has been approved by ten other users it is marked as unverified. After being approved it is permanently added to the English-Korean dictionary.
