WeSay helps non-linguists build a dictionary in their own language. It has various ways to help native speakers to think of words in their language and enter some basic data about them (no backslash codes, just forms to fill in). The program is customizable and task-oriented, giving the advisor the ability to turn on/off tasks as needed and as the user receives training for those tasks. WeSay uses a standard xml format, so data can be exchanged with linguist-oriented tools like FieldWorks. Users can collaborate via USB flash drive or email. WeSay requires the .Net-Framework to run and is available for Windows and Linux (with mono).
WeSay is an open-source co-production of Payap Language Software, SIL PNG, and SIL International.
