Japanska.se is an online Swedish-Japanese dictionary. It was created by Olof Sjöbergh in 2006 and was redone with more modern tech in 2012.

It is one of our own projects and is monetized by ads, though it's not a big financial success due to the small market size.

In 2012 Japanska.se was rewritten in Python and Django. Originally it was implemented in PHP but it was hard to maintain so a rewrite was deemed necessary. The new version also got a totally new frontend based on Twitter Bootstrap.


The main functionality is there but small improvements are added continuously.
