PharosOnline is a collection of online general and subject dictionaries. It offers a one-stop reference for anyone who wants to communicate effectively in English, Afrikaans and other languages. This collection includes a large variety of technical dictionaries and is continually expanded as new titles become available.
Pharos has its own team of lexicographers who are regularly developing new products in order to keep up with the rapidly changing needs of South African dictionary users.
PharosOnline offers subscriptions to single users, multiple users, schools and tertiary institutions. Single users can choose from three packages, namely general dictionaries, subject dictionaries and a combined package consisting of both general and subject dictionaries. The package for multiple users and tertiary institutions includes both general and subject dictionaries. The schools package gives learners access to dictionaries which focus on their daily language needs. The Afrikaanse woordelys en spelreëls is now available as an add-on to any dictionary package or as a standalone subscription.
