The Sign Language Dataset Compendium


Lexical Resource

SignWiki Finland

The SignWiki Finland is a multifaceted open access dictionary of Finland-Swedish Sign Language. It used crowdsourcing to collect the displayed information. Signs and other information can be uploaded and discussed online. A related SignWiki for Finnish Sign Language also exists (see SignWiki Suomi).

SignWiki Finland was created in a cooperation between the Finnish Association of the Deaf, the Humanities University of Applied Sciences (Humak) and the Icelandic Communication Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (SHH). It is part of the Finnish Sign Language Corpus and Citizen Dictionary Project, that ran from 2013–15. Since the end of the project the Finnish Association of the Deaf is responsible for maintaining the sites.
