The Online Maltese Dictionary


Dizzjunarju bil-Malti

The scope of having an online Maltese Dictionary is to keep the Maltese language present and alive within the digital sphere.

The Maltese Dictionary platform allows the user to search for a word in both English and Maltese. If the word searched yields no answer, the page allows the user to send / suggest its inclusion. Such suggestions are vetted by the University of Malta and a decision is made as to whether these should be included or not. For this reason, the Maltese dictionary is dubbed as ‘a resource under continuous development’, which evolves together with the Maltese language.

The dictionary hits an average of 9,846 users per month. Total users since its launch in 2016 reached over 129,000 users.

The continuous development of the online Maltese Dictionary is possible through collaboration with the Institute of Linguistics within the University of Malta and Il-Kunsill Nazzjonali tal-Ilsien Malti. The Dictionary is available on
