 Projects needing sponsorship
We are currently implementing two projects:
  1. a Western Armenian spell-checker
  2. a set of electronic dictionaries that will be added to Nayiri.com

What's involved

Each project has a formal proposal that details everything you, as a donor, may expect, including:
  • the timeline to complete the project
  • the budget required
  • the work to be done
Progress reports are given to donors on a monthly basis. Each project is guaranteed to be completed within the specified budget. Payment is made only upon the successful completion of the project.

Adopt a Dictionary

We are currently looking for sponsors to fund the creation of a set of electronic Armenian dictionaries. Each electronic dictionary will be freely accessible from Nayiri.com and will include built-in spell-checking, word stemming, and virtual keyboard.

We recommend that you or your organization choose one dictionary from the following list and fully sponsor its realization as an electronic dictionary:

Sponsor the Armenian spell-checker

The project to create a free Western Armenian spell-checker will take 18 months to complete.

We have already created a working prototype that we have integrated with the OpenOffice productivity suite and the Firefox Web browser.

Given that it is a larger project than the digitization of any individual dictionary, we expect the participation of a number of donors in fully sponsoring the project.

We encourage serious donors to contact us by email at fundraising@nayiri.com. We can provide a detailed proposal and also provide a demonstration of the prototype.
