“Kelly DB”

Kelly is a project in the EU Lifelong Learning Programme which is preparing word cards for learners of nine languages, whose mother tongue might be any of those nine languages. It has used corpora for identifying the words to be included for each language. Professional translators provided the translations and the results are in the database, accessible here.
