Words and dictionaries play a key role in the development and publicization of science and in standardization of language. IranDoc has been challenged by facing new vocabularies and terms in science and technology while dealing with information processing as part of its mission. As a result, IranDoc found it crucial to provide its experts Farsi words so that they use right Farsi translations for English words and to describe these words in plain Farsi, when needed. This then would help that the meaning of each new word is conveyed properly in Farsi.
Building dictionaries is considered as a constant work in IranDoc. The first dictionary published by IranDoc returns back to 40 years ago. In IranDoc Online Dictionaries' website, IranDoc publishes terms that are controlled, selected and used in the everyday practice of information processing at IranDoc. The printed dictionaries of IranDoc have also been re-published in this website. Altogether these web-based resources are available to all users.
Additionally, dictionaries produced by other key bodies such as Academy of Persian Language and Literature are published on IranDoc Dictionaries' website too. This website contains over ten dictionaries and around 100,000 words. IranDoc welcomes new words and translations or descriptions for words suggested by users.
