bab.laについて

bab.laはAndreas Schroeter, Patrick Ueckerにより創立された言語プロジェクトです。このアイディアはAndreasがずっと抱えていたものです。彼は高校や大学生活を通じて、カナダ、フランス、スウェーデン、アメリカなどでの生活を経験しました。その経験から単純な直接の翻訳では意思疎通がうまくいかない事を痛感し、正しい単語を使い、生きた言語を使わなければ駄目だということを実感しました。長い間Andreasは様々な外国語の辞書を集めていて、こういった言語ポータルのサイトを始めることは自然のステップでした:言語好きの人たちが一緒になって提案しあい、学んでゆく。言語を自然に学ぶには学習を共にできるネイティブスピーカーが一番のいい先生だとおもいませんか?PatrickはPascal、C++、Java、Prolog、LISP、SQL、PHP、JSP、ASP言語専門家で、その知識をもってこのサイトが運営されています:-)

bab.laって何?

The language portal bab.la is a free online platform for language lovers. We have 42 dictionaries for 28 languages, a language forum, vocabulary lessons, language games, quizzes, verb conjugation for 13 languages, phrase books for university, business or travel and an internship platform among many other language-related products.

In April 2015 bab.la joined the Oxford Dictionaries family when Oxford University Press became our parent company. Oxford and bab.la share a vision and mission to deliver quality language-related content to a global community.

Our mission is to become the world's largest online dictionary. To achieve this goal our international and multilingual content team works hand in hand with the users, who can suggest words for the dictionaries and therefore improve their quality. From our office in Hamburg, Germany, we strive to maintain a high-quality language product by adding new entries to the dictionaries and controlling those suggested by users.

We are always happy to hear feedback from you and whenever possible implement your suggestions to make bab.la a better, more efficient and more pleasant product for you to use. Don't hesitate to drop us a line! If you are enthusiastic about languages and want to work with us in Hamburg, check our Jobs page for more information.
