Proofread French-English gloss translations

French-English lexicography / dictionary proofreading project

Wiki editing skills preferred

Budget range is a placeholder

I have 8 words lists / glossaries / mini-dictionaries of African languages written by French linguists, with about 100-300 entries each (estimate: about 2,000 words total).

The glosses (meanings) had been automatically translated from French to English using Google Translate.

The English words will need to be proofread and fixed, since Google Translate had made a lot of mistakes.

The words are basic vocabulary items such as body parts, nature words, and basic verbs. No highly technical or medical terms.


épine spiked *kókí

étoile star *túlú

étranger foreign *mbíàmɛ̀kʊ̀

étroit narrow *PúPú

As you can see, the English glosses need to be improved.

The full word lists have already been posted online, and will be shared with interviewees.
