I can't answer that question, but you may want to first look at
which says they are trying to expand their dictionaries, and in particular 
at their Uzbek-English dictionary
Notice the "Add your words" link.

There is also the Dirks Uzbek lexicon, which is on-line at 
http://www.geocities.com/zangari_kema/.  There used to be a more complete 
version of this at
but it doesn't seem to be available there any more.  I happen to know that 
this is not a publicly editable dictionary, and its copyright should be 
respected.  I'm not sure whether the ismanov project is doing so--some of 
the entries are attributed to Dirks, although it's of course possible that 
they have permission to use it in that way.
