Showcase: New Website for the 'Afrikaanse Woordelys en Spelreëls'

The new website for the AWS (Afrikaanse Woordelys en Spelreëls / Afrikaans Wordlist and Spelling Rules), by Pharos Dictionaries and Die Afrikaanse Taalkommissie (The Afrikaans Language Commission) is now officially live!

We're pleased to have carried out the implementation of this first phase of the website, which uses our advanced Web publishing software. For Pharos, the site complements the over 20 titles already available at Pharos Dictionaries Online, also implemented by TeDJe.

From the announcement of the Taalkommissie (Language Commission): "'n Eerste weergawe van die aanlyn AWS-woordelyste is klaar! Gaan na om die AWS se woordelys, afkortingslys en lys van buitelandse geografiese name te raadpleeg. Laat weet asseblief wat julle van die webblad dink!"

Watch this space for further interesting projects coming in the near future!

  1. Impressive business you have! I'm also in the language business, but on a minuscule scale compared with yours.

    I wonder whether you saw the review of my book "Diacs and Quirks in a Nutshell – Afrikaans spelling explained" in the December 2012 issue of "Muratho"? If you, or some of the people working with you, are interested in finding out more about it, there is further information on it on my blog,

    Kind regards
