ALL RIGHTS UNRESERVEDXOBDO is a community-driven project; that is any member of the community can propel the project either by adding new words or by challenging the accuracy of the existing words, even by editing these words when necessary. Being equipped with a database enriched by the community, the XOBDO Team has decided to publish it as a package in every six months under General Public License. The package will contain XOBDO's data in a number of formats such as the existing words, their meanings and other relevant information. Any application developer or researcher can download and use the package by embedding it in his/her application, which will be part of the research work or the application development under the said license.
"A dictionary by you, for you, of you" - keeping in line with this spirit, from the 6th Anniversary, that is 10-March-2012, XOBDO.ORG has become a "copyleft" website and has started to share the main database with anybody who wish to obtain a copy of it.

Also working on Assamese machine translation, transliteration and other projects. We need Assamese word corpus to bring word prediction in the keyboard (only monolingual).
