slide3

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    • Needed to interpret historical documents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
slide4

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
    • http://courses.washington.edu/ohd/system.htm

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
slide8

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
slide9

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
