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.

Subject: Uzbek Wiktionary (to Abdurashid or whoever speaks Uzbek)

Hi Abdurashid,

I had a closer look at the Uzbek wiktionary and there are already some 
pages, but I don't know if they are correct.

So could you please check these links (it seems as if someone added the 
Turkish translation of some words):

I cannot check these pages since I don't know any Uzbek or Turkish.

The next question is - well I suppose it is like I think it should be: 
words in Uzbek are normally written lower case, right? So the Uzbek 
Wiktionary should make a difference between upper case and lower case.

And well ... ehm maybe you could also help me with our Christmas wishes 

Up to now we don't have the Christmas wishes in Uzbek  and of course 
it would be great to have them (as well as any other missing language). 
Well: you can add tem yourself or just send them in a file to me 

Best wishes,

 Well, there are some projekts on www.ismanov.com, and I'm already editing the german-uzbek projekt of this site.
I also know about W.Dirks's work and it is only one big translation dictionary till yet for modern. That's all about.

TO Sabine,

I visited those links with uzbek verbs. There are actually right untill

http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/Bilmoq - to know
http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/Eshitmoq - to hear
http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/Ko'rmoq - to see
http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/Qilmoq - to do, to make
http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/Yugurmoq - to run
http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/Bo'lmoq - to be
http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/Gaplashmoq - to speak to, 
http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/Uxlamoq - to sleep
http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/Yurmoq - to go
http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/O'ylamoq - to think
http://uz.wiktionary.org/wiki/Yemoq - to eat
some problems with orthography. But it's still not an full uzbek entry. There only some translations for uzbek verbs like!

I'm actually an graduate student in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. The target of my study is how to create a modern uzbek translation dictionaries with help of computional linguistics.
SO I would like to enter some projekts, were I can help to edit the pages with uzbek. I do speak uzbek, russian, german and little bit english.

You wrote in your last message about some interest for uzbek in BAmberg. Could you contact us?
ANd can I keep working in uzbek wiktionary?
