New entry for LEO – User guide

When to use this forum

The New Entry forum is where we like to receive your suggestions for new entries. A different forum or action might be more suitable for you if:

  • you would like to find out the translation for a word – in this case please use English missingund Russisch gesucht vorgesehen
  • you are unsure of a translation and would like to check with others – in this case please use Translation correct?
  • you have a whole glossary that you would like to donate. In this case please send us an email. Please be aware that we can only include glossaries if the copyright owner declares agreement to transfer of the collection of vocabulary items to LEO and permit LEO to make use of the data.

How to use this forum

  • If you would like to send us several related entries (e.g. the various species within a whole family of plants) we ask you to either send us a word list or separate your list into manageable groups of closely related entries. This helps us to keep our bearings and stay efficient.
  • For the benefit of all users, we are linking dictionary entries that are based on a suggestion in the new entry section with the relevant post. Other users will appreciate the time and effort you invested in researching an entry. Thank you!

  • It would be great if – along with the URL or source reference – you could also provide the relevant passage from your source that supports your suggested entry.
