Lexikon 2k Publisher started in 1990 as collaboration between a small group of people who had been developing a freeware – a free software solution which could allow users to look up words quicker than books and to translate from Swedish to foreign languages. The Swedish page for this solution was one of the first public Internet pages made in Sweden. Having lookup, translation and wordlist extension features in it, that early dictionary software was a success. Since its foundation, Lexikon 2k has been focusing on young people who need to find a single word on the spot. Top priority is dictionaries, education materials and tourism. Lexikon 2k has been improving its materials and the dictionaries wordlists are being populated with modern vocabulary. The publisher has been producing only online materials.
