Spreadthesign is an international Leonardo da Vinci project within the Transfer of Innovation program, which is supported by the European Commission through the Swedish International Program Office of Education and Training. Our goal is to share sign languages from different countries via the Internet. This pedagogic self-learning tool is free to anyone throughout the world. The use of this dictionary is only limited by the participant’s imagination. The primarily reason for this project is to improve our vocational students’ language skills when going abroad for work practice. Between October 2008 and October 2010 we will upload vocabulary from a variety of vocational fields and topic areas into the dictionary, adding to its size. A new feature will be added to the database which will include audio as well as 3D animation to the words. We will also increase the number of languages in the dictionary beyond that of the EU. Spreadthesign is now global.
