Sign up and log in to SooSL Web (W)

Parent Previous Next

Most of the time, people can use SooSL Web without logging in. However, there are two situations where you need to set up a user account in order to use SooSL Web:

Here is how to sign up for a user account on SooSL Web. First, go to the SooSL Web site. Click in the SooSL menu (top gray) bar. You will then see the Sign Up form.

We ask you to make a username and password, and to tell us your real name, an email address where we can contact you, and what dictionary or dictionaries you want to use. We need to know your real name and email address so we can know whether you have permission to see a private dictionary or to upload a new version of a dictionary. You also have to accept our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Check the checkbox. Then, click .

To see private dictionaries, log in to your account on SooSL Web

After that, you can click to log in to your account from the SooSL menu bar. However, you won't see any private dictionaries immediately. Other things have to happen first:

After the creator approves, when you log in to your account, you will see their private dictionary on the list on the main screen. Private dictionaries have the word "[private]" after their name. In some cases, there may be both a public and a private version of the same dictionary.

To upload a dictionary, log in through SooSL Desktop

If you want to upload a new version of dictionary, and you are not the dictionary creator, we will check with the creator to see if they will let you upload a new version. Then we will set up the SooSL Web so you can upload. You also need to verify your email address, the same as for viewing private dictionaries (above). After these things are done, you can log in through SooSL Desktop to upload a new version of the dictionary to SooSL Web. See the instructions here.

Change your user profile, password or log out

After you log in, you can change your user profile (user name, real name, email address) and password, or you can log out.

On a smartphone or other narrow layout, open the menu.

One a computer or other wide layout, click your user name in the SooSL menu bar

If you change your email address, we will send you a new verification email. You need to verify the email address (see above) before you can see private dictionaries or upload.

If you are the owner of a dictionary on SooSL Web, you can also manage your dictionary.
