Pinchah Kristang, the Kristang Online Dictionary, was launched at the 1st Kristang Language Festival on 20 May 2017 by Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister, Mr Teo Chee Hean.

The development of the dictionary was led by Luís Morgado da Costa and based on the WordNet system developed at the Nanyang Technological University. The dictionary is an attempt to compile entries from the three existing print dictionaries (including the new edition by the Eurasian Association in Singapore), entries from Jardinggu the lexical incubator for Kristang, as well as previously-undocumented entries from the community — so that Kristang can be available and accessible to a wider audience.
