English to Estonian Dictionary
The Estonian language is spoken by only about one million people worldwide. Thus, the number of online language recourses are limited. There are online dictionaries such as Google Translate, but they are not catered for the peculiarities of the Estonian languages. For instance, only one form of the noun is given instead of the essential three forms: the singular nominative, singular genitive, and singular partitive.
In this dictionary, you can search for an English term and obtain the corresponding Estonian terms enriched with information about their cases. It is, unfortunately, not possible to get the declensions right away. You have to infer them from the displayed notes and rules delivered by the Eesti Keele Institue (EKI , The Institue of the Estonian Language). This dictionary combines two of their web services:
So in essence, it first translates the word via [IES] and and then looks up the Estonian terms on [ÕS].
I am grateful for any contribution, feedback or bug report.
