Oxford University Press


Education changes lives forever. It broadens horizons, breaks down barriers, and fires imaginations. Like the University of Oxford of which we are a part, we are committed to uncompromising standards, freedom of expression, and the enrichment of lives through education. This is our motivation, our purpose, and our mission. It is why 100% of the money we make is reinvested into education and research. It is why we all care deeply about reaching more people, in more places, with world-class learning and research materials and services.

Oxford Languages, a department of Oxford University Press, is the world’s leading dictionary publisher as well as being at the forefront of language technology innovations. Oxford Languages delivers a range of language data products and services in over 50 languages, including bespoke lexical datasets, self-service APIs, and our flagship Oxford English Dictionary (OED). 

Our partnerships with leading academic institutions, enterprising start-ups, and technology giants have embedded this content at the cutting-edge of language research and global communications. Oxford Languages content powers assistive technology products, word games, and “back-end” (non-display) purposes such as Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning.
