PyCDSL: A Programmatic Interface to Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries


PyCDSL is a Python library that provides programmer friendly interface to Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries (CDSD). The library serves as a corpus management tool to download, update and access dictionaries from CDSD. The tool provides a command line interface for ease of search and a programmable interface for using CDSD in computational linguistic projects written in Python 3.

My research lies in the intersection of Computational Linguistics, Natural Language Processing, and Software Engineering with a particular emphasis on low-resource languages such as Sanskrit and other Indian languages. I am committed to pioneering NLP innovations that have a real-world impact. I enjoy building user-friendly GUIs and CLIs for various applications. My interests also include Information Retrieval, Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, and Machine Learning.
