The Kildin-Saami Multimedia Dictionary Project

The project will work on creating a Kildin-Russian-Kildin multimedia
dictionary accessible online.

The goal of the project is to create a multimedia Kildin-Russian-
Kildin dictionary with around 8000 Kildin-Sami entries and phrases
which will be linked to sound and image files. The dictionary shall
be stored in platform-independent XML format and shall be openly
accessible via a Saami internet portal. Furthermore an appropriate
number of the CD-ROM version of the dictionary shall be distributed
to schools, libraries and Saami institutions both in and outside of
Russia. Saami computer programmer Alexander Yurjev will do the
programming and database. Michael Riessler and Elisabeth Scheller
shall assist in editing and linking of the sound and image files.
This project will be carried out starting in June 2006 and ending in
May 2007.

The word databases and the multimedia files linked to these shall be
stored in the DOBES archive in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, together
with other linguistic and anthropological data being documented by
the Volkswagen funded Kildin-Saami Documentation Project.
