Agenda

  • Review of Background

  • Review of Needs Assessment

  • Review of Implementation Process

  • Evaluation Process

  • Feature Demo


Background

  • Importance of Ottoman Language

  • The last great Eurasian empire of modern times

  • Influenced cultures from North Africa to Islamic nations, Central Asia and Greece

  • Influenced the structure of life of Bosnia, Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Israel and others.

    • Why is it a “historical” dictionary?

    • Dead language

    • Needed to interpret historical documents

    • More information then just a dictionary


Needs Assessment

  • Four languages

    • Ottoman, Modern Turkish, Arabic and English

  • Ottoman language structure

    • An Ottoman word can have very different definitions depending on its origin and grammatical form

  • Three levels of access

    • Verifier (1-3): Ottoman experts

    • Enterers (20-30): Accredit Ottoman Scholars

    • Searchers(200-1000): students, hobbyists, researchers

  • Compared systems for code reuse

Implementation Process

  • Implemented in MySQL and PHP

  • Implemented three interfaces

    • Search

    • Entry

    • Verification (in progress)

  • Implemented an user interface with a strong usability focus

  • Continue meeting with clients

    • Entering and using real data

    • Continuing to develop the database and user interface


Design Decisions

  • Two databases, a main and a temporary one

  • Dynamic forms, for one-to-many and many-to-many inserts

  • Ottoman text, grammatical form and origin make an entry unique


Evaluation Process

  • Usability testing with two users with given common tasks

  • Heuristic evaluation of user interface

  • Results:

    • Add an instruction page

    • Add “Back” buttons to error message pages

    • Exact and advanced search options for Ottoman searches

    • Alternate coloring of table rows for easy viewing of returned results

    • Added a security feature for word submission

    • Able to detect empty definition and translation fields
