Licensing the dictionary data

Macmillan Dictionary data is now available via an API. For non-commercial applications, we offer free access up to a limit of 10,000 calls a month. For commercial use, terms and fees are negotiable.

We recommend that anyone wishing to use Macmillan Dictionary should use the API, but in the event that the API is not practicable for your requirements, please contact us to discuss our licensing options, which range from the full product, to specific data sets – all of which can be customized and co-branded on request.

For further details on the API, please click here.
