Informative seminar about the results of Latvian Language Agency within the cross-border Project of Estonia – Latvia Programme „Development of Estonian – Latvian and Latvian – Estonian dictionary”
On October 2, 2013 at 3.00 pm. in Riga the informative seminar about the results of Latvian Language Agency within the cross-border Project of Estonia – Latvia Programme „Development of Estonian – Latvian and Latvian – Estonian dictionary” will be held at the European Union House, in Aspazijas Blvd 28.
The Project is being implemented with the support of the European Union structural funds’ 3rd goal “European territorial co-operation”, Estonian-Latvian cross-border co-operation programme for 2007-2013. During this project, a new Estonian-Latvian and Latvian-Estonian dictionary, consisting of 40 000 headwords, and an electronic dictionary version, will be developed, ensuring widest possible access to the dictionary for all those interested in, and therefore, promoting effective co-operation in the long term between Latvia and Estonia. The project will last until April, 2015.
During this seminar, Latvian Language Agency will introduce with the progress of the Project and the current results of the dictionary compiling process. Since a very crucial part of the Project is the development of the electronic dictionary, its current version, consisting of 15 000 headwords, will be presented, thus allowing anyone, interested in, to use it. The work on compiling and developing the dictionary material is in progress, and is to reach the set goal of 40 000 headwords until the April, 2015.
