How to Update the IDP

Adding to the IDP is easy:

  1. From the form at the bottom of the previous page, select a language for which you would like to provide translations.
  2. Select a letter of the alphabet where you would like to start viewing the English wordlist. Each page of English words will contain 50 words, plus translations (if any; also, see below).
  3. Select whether or not you want to view: The first item will only display English words which have not been translated. The second item will display all the words in the English wordlist.
  4. Click on the "Start IDP" button at the bottom of the page.
The next page you see should contain approximately 50 English words, one per line, with translations listed (or not) underneath each English word. To add a translation for an English word, type the translation in the box to the right of the English word. You may add translations for as many of the 50 words on the page as you wish. To submit your translations on that page to the database, click on the "Submit Translations" button at the bottom of the page. Your translations will be immediately added to the wordlist database.

At the bottom of each page of words are three options:

  1. Next 50 words - this will display the next 50 words in the wordlist (alphabetical order).
  2. Start at a new position - this will allow you to enter a word to start the list at. Useful for searching for a particular word whose translation you know, instead of scolling through many pages to find it.
  3. Return to the IDP Homepage - this returns you to the IDP Homepage, where you may select a new language, or start the list at a new letter or word.
Use these options to navigate around the English wordlist.
