  • Brief description of your expertise / expertise you are looking for:

    Institute of the Estonian Language has been providing general language consultation over the phone, via e-mail and web form, as well as terminology consultation, and are now working towards unifying the consultation services. We have been using various databases for different types of linguistic data, including the questions and answers, and are now working towards merging those databases into a general source of information about language. We are looking for experience with language consultation systems different from ours, as well as complementary expertise and resources in service design, user research, and presentation of linguistic data.

  • Brief description of your project / the project you would like to join:

    The project aims to create a unified and universally accessible system of providing language consultation. The primary outcome will be prompt and reliable answers to questions on a wide variety of linguistic topics, taking into account the finiteness of resources and the need to motivate a wide range of experts to provide the answers. A secondary outcome will be systematised and generalised answers for inclusion in proactive sources of linguistic information like dictionaries, handbooks, etc., so that as many answers as possible could be found from those sources, thereby reducing the need for answering recurring questions.
