Welcome to Entri
Entri is the new name of Terminallogy. The new url is www.Entri.xyz. We will gradually change this website, so stay tuned!
This is a general introduction for visitors to Entri. You can find more details about the project in the left menu sections, e.g. some information about contributing.
The name "Entri" was chosen because the main module of the termbase is the term entry form. The logo is a stylized E and vocabulary entry.
Entri is written collaboratively by largely anonymous contributors, internet volunteers - mainly translators and terminologists - who add and edit depending on their user status term articles, so called "term pages", as well as term tables without pay. However, contributors can sell banner space on Entri. Any user with internet access can, if accepted and registered, write and make changes to term pages. Users can contribute under a pseudonym, or, if they choose to, with their real identity. If you'd like to add or edit term pages too, just join the club!
The software chosen to run Entri is MediaWiki, which also powers wiki websites like Wikipedia and Wiktionary. The reasons for this choice are:
- The software is more or less predestined to be used for dictionary-type websites.
- Known to most internet users.
- The software is free, open source and stable.
- Ideal for large projects.
- Many possible configurations and extensions.
