Abstract — The paper presents the ongoing project Longdo Thai Online Dictionary Service. Longdo comprises of two parts: the word look up service part (or search part) and the dictionary contents building part. In the first part, users access Longdo via its web site or the software client to look up Thai meanings of foreign words (currently English, Japanese, and German are supported). The search database includes the Longdo dictionaries data and other existing free dictionaries. In the second part, the bi-lingual dictionaries English-Thai, Japanese-Thai, and German-Thai are being built using the collaborative model where users themselves contribute the dictionary contents through the approval mechanism. In this paper, overview of the Longdo project, search process, how to handle the hit and missed searches are discussed. In case of missed searches, similar words are suggested. Users ’ queries are used as feedback to improve the dictionary contents
