Vortan is an open-source project which aims to boost the online and digital presence of the Armenian language. There are a set of tools there are available in most languages that we want to develop for Armenian.


  • Spellchecker
    • Browser plugin and phone keyboard for Eastern & Western Armenian.
  • Pox
    • Type in english; produce Armenian words.
  • Armenian OCR
    • An optical character recognizer to scan books in Armenian
  • Dictionaries
    • Comprehensive digital dictionaries and corpora in both Eastern & Western Armenian.


We are looking for ambitious programmers, linguists, designers, or anyone else who would like to join the project! Shoot us an email at souren@papazian.info.
