Development phases

By Ian Williams | 1 May, 2020

The ‘rollout’ of Colish to the world is going to be a sporty undertaking. To provide a framework for planning, the rollout is split into the following phases (as of May 2020):

  1. Spark - Getting the idea going (Completed).
  2. Ember - Getting traction with people and organisations who support the initiative (Completed).
  3. Glow - Firing up the Alliance, the community platform, mailings.
  4. Twinkle - Partner onboarding, developing the alpha version of the e-dictionary.
  5. Dawn - Beta dictionary, ISO en-CE.
  6. Twilight - Dict release, CoCon, hubs, tools, VAP network, media.
  7. Sunrise - Deployment of the Colish dict to 1 billion mobiles / devices, certification services.

The time frame for the above is dependent on a multitude of factors - capital, partner willingness, etc, but if the willingness is there, Colish could be available in 2022, in the Chinese year of the Tiger.
