The goal of the new ODO was to put Oxford's largest modern English dictionaries, thesauruses, and usage guides at its users fingertips. Positioned to be the go-to resource for definition-seekers, business professionals, writers, copyeditors, linguists, academics, students, teachers, non-native speakers, puzzle enthusiasts, and "wordies", a high level of design and functionality was essential.
The ODO was built on PubFactory which not only allowed for a unique focus on design and custom development, but also enabled the team to work within an aggressive timeframe.
Along with sophisticated browse and filter options, we developed separate modules with detailed writing, grammar, and spelling guidance, specialist language reference resources for professional writers and editors, and a dedicated puzzle-solving zone.
