The way you access our dictionary content is changing.

As part of the evolution of the Oxford Global Languages (OGL) programme, we are now focussing on making our data available for digital applications, which enables a greater reach in delivering and embedding our language data in the daily lives of people and providing more immediate access and better representation for them and their language.

Because of this, we have made the decision to close our dictionary websites.
Our Oxford Urdu living dictionary site closed on 31st March 2020, and this forum closed with it.

We would like to warmly thank everyone for your participation and support throughout these years – we hope that this forum, and the dictionary site, have been useful
You were instrumental in making the Oxford Global Languages initiative a success!
