OmegaWiki is self-described as a "collaborative project to produce a free, multilingual dictionary in every language, with lexicological, terminological and thesaurus information". In other words, "information on all words of all languages", a multilingual dictionary whose entries have definitions translated to as many languages as possible and which provides synonyms and translations for the word in even more languages. Significantly, the OmegaWiki data is available in a relational database, and it uses 'wikidata', making it possible to use the wikis data for many purposes.

OmegaWiki uses an unusual edit mode – "As an anonymous user (OpenEdit, aka IP editor), you can only add new data. If you would like to also modify existing data, please create an account and indicate your languages on your user page" (LoginToEdit). The primary language used on the wiki is English, but all other languages can be user selectable. The wiki content is released under two licenses: GNU Free Documentation License 1.2 and Creative Commons Attribution 2.5.

As of February 2011, OmegaWiki had portals in 292 languages, representing the theoretical number of languages a word could be defined in. In its paging structure, OmegaWiki differentiates between expressions and defined meanings (which correspond in a printed dictionary roughly to entries or words and to numbered definitions). The number of expressions in various languages is readily accessible at one of the OmegaWiki statistics pages. The most recent check[when?] of this information showed 11 languages with more than 10,000 expressions, another 63 languages with 500 or more expressions, 151 with fewer than than but still more than five expressions, and 57 languages with five or fewer expressions. As of March 2013, its stats showed it had 422 languages, 46,263 defined meanings, and 478,138 expressions.
