The long awaited TUKI English-Swahili Dictionary is at last in print and ready for its users. Having taken sixty years of waiting, fourteen years of preparation, the heavy and difficult task has now exposed the brains and energy of lexicographers, academic members and the administrative staff of the Institute of Kiswahili Research who consistently and continuously devoted themselves to its accomplishment. However, it would have been far from being complete had it not been for the assistance of others outside the Institute. This dictionary, which is not only new but also the biggest ever among Kiswahili dictionaries is a result of serious and doughty teams of the Institute who spent their precious time on the over 50,000 entries in order to introduce language learners and dictionary users into current language usage. A dictionary of this kind and size needs concerted efforts of many people especially when it is taken into account that the whole work, from compilation to printing, was done in house. The teams that accomplished this work included Lexicographers, Editors, Secretaries, Proofreaders and members of the printing section
