Wikipedia offers API to access the dictionary data and you can use it to create your own. Go to wikitionary page. And find the developer section. You'll find the documentation on how to access that data. You can then customize that data to suit your purpose. I have found that most off the time this data definitely helps with building your own app without having to worry about license issues. As the wikipedia content is free of cost to reuse, you can try using their data.

Other than that you have sources such as creating your own dictionary. But it is not going to be easy and quick. You have to spend the time and money creating such resources. So it is better to take data from other dictionary sites which allow you such API sharing.

Hi friend,

1) To create your own online dictionary first you want a great collection of words that covers almost every possible word related to any field.

2) To create online dictionary you must have knowledge about languages, you should have knowledge about MYsql andPHP.

3) To create a good dictionary online I would recommend Drupal CMS.

Thank you
