Why participate?

We are developing the largest and most detailed free online Korean dictionary in the world. You can be a part of that effort by lending a hand with the Korean-English dictionary. For every term added, the Korean dictionary is improved and becomes more useful. The Korean-English translations become better and more diverse when more users contribute. For example, Korean words can have multiple translations depending on context. A Korean medical expression may be the same as another scientific term, but have a different translation. Any new addition to the Korean-English dictionary has to be corrected before it is fully included in the dictionary. This happens when 10 other users have voted for the translation as being accurate.
Join us and the community on bab.la by registering right now. You are awarded points for any activity where you help improve the Korean dictionary and can compete with other users in the world ranking. If you are not sure whether you got a Korean translation right, you can always post a question to other users in the Korean-English forum. In the forum, topics like grammar, translation and other subjects relating to Korean language are discussed.
