Hoekom is Bengali (Bangladesh) Dictionary gebou?

We live in a part of the world, where emotions can derive a nation. We love our land, culture, language and most importantly our people. We are 160 million of people of which almost 97% of the population cannot read English. To benefit from ICT and Computers local language must be adopted for software. We at Ankur have been localizing various open source software for last 10 years. We have had localized Mozilla products several years ago. Couple of years ago we felt and explored the need of various language tool. Spell Checking is one of the important of all. Near about 230 millions of speaker with 193 million of native speakers ranking Bengali the 6th in the world. Everyday, hundreds and thousands of Bengali speaker use Firefox to write in Bengali over the internet, sends mail, designs website write article in Wikipedia. But, lack of Bengali spell checker renders typos in text - leaving behind an erroneous archive online; which over the period of time may change the Bengali demography someday. Well we do fear that. And above all we are the nation who fought and shaded blood for our Language. We must have our spell checker add-on.

Wat is volgende vir Bengali (Bangladesh) Dictionary?

Initially we started with 250,000 Bengali/Bangla/বাংলা words in this add-on. We followed the Bangla Academy spelling rules and regulations; and transliterated foreign words as instructed by the academy. We uploaded our extension to Mozilla add-ons server. After one year we included more words and gradually we achieved 400,000 words count. Later we requested and engaged the Linguistic department of Dhaka University, they cross checked the entire database for integrity and consistency. But, there are problems and typos within the database; and it detects correct words as typos. We are in continuous process to take this add-on near to error-less. We are planning to add name of places and prominent persons in the database to exclude form the detection. We must work with Bengali numbers, which get detected as typos. We are planning an inbuilt feature of word suggestions from users.
