SignWiki Suomi

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

SignWiki Suomi 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). SignWiki Suomi 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.

The SignWiki Suomi is part of the SignWiki initiative.
