DICTIONARY OF NEPALI LANGUAGE

Site: http://dsal.uchicago.edu/dictionaries/turner/index.html

Purpose: Nepali-to-English Dictionary.

Creators: The Digital South Asia Library project (DSAL) together with the Digital Dictionaries of South Asia (DDSA) have instituted a plan for archiving and preserving their resources.

Project: About the Digital Dictionaries of South Asia project

The South Asia Language and Area Center at University of Chicago, Columbia University, and the Triangle South Asia Consortium in North Carolina are creating and disseminating electronic dictionaries. For each of the twenty-six modern literary languages of South Asia, a panel of language experts identified key dictionaries currently in print and selected at least one multilingual dictionary for each language. For the more frequently taught languages, a monolingual dictionary also has been chosen. After identifying the best available resources, the chosen dictionaries have been converted to digital formats.
Usage: It's as easy as pie, either use Unicode or plain Roman for words to find. eg. mero or मेरो .

My Words: This is one great resource for anyone seeking not only Nepali-to-English translation, but major south asian languages like Assamese, Bengali, Baluchi, Hindi, Persian, Newari, Marathi, Rajasthani, Tamil, Telugu, Torwali, Urdu, Tibetan and more. So, this online dictionary of major South Asian languages seems very useful for learners as well as researchers. I've not been able to dive into whole archives of the site but to the extent where i used it, it's very much efficient than the one being developed by our own www.mpp.org.np. I've tried couple of rare words to find the meaning and it could deliver that very well just in front of my monitor.
