Street Dutch came about through our own attempt to learn
Dutch. We found that existing dictionaries didn't meet our
needs. So, we decided to make our own.
- Mobile -- The dictionary needs to go where you go. You never know
when you need to look a word up. On the train, at a restaurant, and
reading the newspaper on a park bench are all places that a dictionary might be
useful. This is why we designed Street Dutch for the mobile phone.
- Contains everyday words -- It is very frustrating to try looking a word
up in the dictionary only to find it isn't there. That is why we included
all the word forms, not just the root word.
- Browsable -- If you miss the feel of a book where you
can just flip through the pages and look up the words, that catch your eye, then this feature
is for you. With the swipe of a finger, you can scroll through the words
in the dictionary.
- Extendable -- We are not perfect. At this point, the
of Street Dutch
contains about 25,000 frequently used words. It is very likely that you
may come across words not in our dictionary. So, we made it is possible
for you to request new words to be added to the Dictionary.
- Free -- Yes, the Street Dutch web application is free to use for noncommercial purposes.
We are constantly trying to improve Street Dutch. To read about how Street Dutch is evolving and changing.
