The TaoTao-Project is free research platform. No registration is needed for reading, searching or using dictionaries and word-for-word translator. Registration however is necessary to gain write access to dictionaries or pages. Registration is free of charge.

The TaoTao-Project is intended for students, researchers, translators and religious workers at the field of language, religion, folklore, philosophy, anthropology, history and traditional forms of medicine and healing. People of all fields are allowed to register. It should be understood that the project aims to preserve some scholarly nature in translations and dictionaries.

Registration is done by carefully filling out the registration form. Registration information is used to determine the access for some parts like editing some dictionary fields. Only people knowing Finnish language can edit Finnish fields of the dictionary for example.

All registration applications will be manually reviewed and incomplete information leads to rejection of the application. Approved registrations will be activated and a password will be sent to the given email.
