The Oxford Dictionaries API provides access to our current English dictionaries which are available on en.oxforddictionaries.com. This is our most comprehensive current English dictionary dataset and includes enhanced, updated versions of the Oxford Dictionary of English and the New Oxford American Dictionary. It includes more than 350,000 entries and is regularly updated with new words, senses, and definitions.

We also have content in Spanish, German, Portuguese, Romanian, isiZulu, Northern Sotho, Malay, Indonesian... and many more, and we're adding more all the time. Take a look at our supported language page for the most up-to-date list.

We are also currently looking at launching data from bab.la and the Oxford English Dictionary (OED).
Bab.la offers bi-directional translations in more than 28 languages, while the OED offers information on the history, pronunciation, and usage of more than 600,000 words, past and present. Please see the our data page for further information.
