Mwsdd.exe is an interface to the University of Köln's digital Sanskrit project, which is a digitized form of the Monier Williams dictionary. It is a windows program which you can locally install on your PC alongside with the huge 16MB dictionary file created by the university of Köln which contains about 160.000 entries.
The files contained in the freely downloadable archive presented in this site are the result of a research project undertaken by Marco Franceschini at the Department of Oriental Studies of the University of Turin: an enlarged electronic version of Bloomfield's 1906 A Vedic Concordance is now available, five years after the first electronic version of Bloomfield's original work.

The data is made available to scholars and students in two forms. The first form is that of scanned images of the works, which provides a convenient substitute to the physical books.

It comprises a Sanskrit to French dictionary, freely available as a [pdf] document, or as a browsable hypertext document, accessible through a [search index]. Each entry of the dictionary links to a grammatical tool listing its morphological productions (declensions for substantives, conjugated and participial forms for roots). This grammatical tool is accessible as a stand-alone [grammarian]. Conversely, a [lemmatiser] attempts to tag inflected forms. Various other linguistic tools are available, such as a [sandhi engine], and an experimental [Sanskrit reader], including sandhi analysis, morphological tagging, and shallow parsing. The site also provides a small [portal] of Sanskrit relevant links.
I have written a sanskrit grammar using a semi-formal notation for reading online ... (Since it uses embeded fonts it's best viewed with IE5+. It's encoded in unicode though, so I suppose it's viewable in any browser that supports unicode.) It includes: Phonology - internal and external sandhi rules; Morphology - description of ALL roots in Whitney's ``The roots, verb-forms, and primary derivatives of the Sanskrit language'' (with basic meanings from Cappeller's A Sanskrit-English dictionary) - full paradigms (when possible) in pop-up windows - declension - conjugation - verbal nouns - pronouns - indeclinables; Syntax - with examples (sandi removed for clarity); Example texts
Provides an interactive, online seach Sanskrit-English and English-Sanskrit facility. Find the meaning of that verb! How do you say "net" in Sanskrit? Again, highly recommended.
A preliminary version of the Critical Pali Dictionary is now back online: cf. Jonathan Silk's message to the INDOLOGY list (June 2007).
Tamil online dictionaries and other important resources are available at the [Institute of Indology and Tamil Studies, Köln: Indological resources].
