Bugs in the Dragon Flame application (such as the "update" feature of Dragon Flame 1.0
being broken) are not to be reported. Cross your fingers, be patient and wait the for the
next release of the application.
Contributing to the dictionary
There are certainly a number of things that could be enhanced in this dictionary.
It should also be possible to improve the definitions, the encyclopaedic
discussions and the overall presentation of the material. Several words may
be missing, or incorrectly entered... All that to say: it’s up to you now,
gentle reader, to comment on this work and make it a living thing.
It is also the convenient place to note that the Sindarin/English
lexicon is also available as an electronic file in XML – more precisely, as
a document following a subset of the TEI recommendations. This XML document
is distributed with a license less restrictive than the PDF version, allowing
anyone to use the lexicon in derivative works, including translation, use
in software, etc. For instance, one could develop a search engine similar
to the one available on my web site, but intended to be used on a local computer,
without requiring an access to the Internet. I am sure that dozens of other
applications could be designed...
