Dictionary Home

MashiThantu is a software collection to promote the use of Malayalam language in the dynamic worlds of internet communications. As we believe in the age old saying – A journey of thousand miles must begin with a single step and as a first step, we take great pleasure to introduce a Malayalam-Malayalam-English dictionary (beta). A full fledged Malayalam Text Editor and a Spell Checker are in the pipeline.

Nighantu Approach
The text box provided in the left top corner of the page enables you to type Manglish and the suggestion box simultaneously displays the corresponding Malayalam words. Use “Find Meaning” button to get the meaning (if it is present in the dictionary).

You may use Google Search button to search a Malayalam word in Google.

This dictionary is targeted to add 45,000+ words to its database.

    Great to have this website. For many English words we understand their correct usage, by understanding their meaning through Malayalam words.

  • Noufal

    In this site, many of the words have no Malayalam meaning. That means we cannot depend it more. Can you solve this problem?

  • admin


    Thanks for your feedback.

    would you be happy, If we delete the words with only english meaning?

    A few people are involved in the translation of english meaning to Malayalam. it may take time. you may join them by editing the words you know.

  • K.K.C Nair

    The dictionary has been quite useful especially to those who are non resident Keralite. While, translataing Max Muller into Malayalam, I had to search for the meaning of a word in English for which this dictonary has been found handy.

    However if you want to improve upon this useful work, being a former editor and being a qualified person in English as well as Malayalam, I offer to help you.

  • B. Sathiapalan

    Good dictionary. However: “bran” gave Malayalam thaviT. But thaviT gave for Englidh powder. Should have given bran too.
    It should be internally self consistent.

    Hi, Team Mashithantu,

    I am a regular visitor of your site. Really its a good venture. I appreciate this initiative and the urge you people have shown for promoting my language. As I am a humble user of this useful and informative site for may, I have a small suggestion to include an f-share button in its home page, so that it could be more reachable to my fellow Malayali friends.

  • Vikas Reddy

    Very good work, buddy!

    Since Malayalam is still not part of Google Translate, I use your dictionary.mashithantu.com for looking for meanings. It’s very useful and helpful for non-malayalees like me…
