At this point in time, OSLIN is available in the languages mentioned below. There are several more languages currently under development: Spanish, English, Dutch, Mirandes, and Asturian. However, the data for these languages are not yet developed far enough for distribution. People interested in developing an OSLIN for additional languages, please contact the author.
