In Awabakal language ’Miromaa’ means ‘saved’
This user-friendly and secure database is designed to help you gather, organise, analyse and produce outcomes for your language work, even multiple languages or dialects - with an option to create a data file per language or have all your data combined.

*Not yet suitable for MacBooks for data imput, but can share via iPhones, iPads and iTouch devices
Easy to use
Miromaa is language software created by Aboriginal people for Aboriginal people – anyone with the very basics of computer skills to more the more advanced. Miromaa has a dedicated Learning Area where you can begin your first steps immediately.
Create dictionaries (and more) to share
With Miromaa it’s easy to create a range of printed learning tools - such as: dictionaries, wordlists and word posters. We have incorporated many filters so that you can construct a language list to suit your needs. For example, would you like a word list of just words that relate to wildlife? No problem. Just set your filters appropriately and your word list is created within seconds.
Functions for linguists
Miromaa also has a work area for linguists, with extra special fields and the capacity to import and export data from/to Toolbox, Flex and Lexique Pro. This is extremely useful for language programs where a visiting academic or linguist may have done work using these programs.
Excellent archive process
Our Aboriginal languages are traditionally an oral language, not text based. With Miromaa, you have the ability to upload and access all types of multimedia: audio files, images and video, as well as text - including MS Word, excel and PDFs.
Create your own app
We can help to create your own user-friendly app from the data you have fed into the Miromaa software - including hearing your language spoken. A great learning tool for people of all ages, from young ones to elders. All you need to do is select what you want from Miromaa, export it, share it with us and we create the app for you - customised to your own colour selection and home screen icon.
Security and access
Miromaa is a very secure digital environment. You can have as many users as you like, with an option to set different levels of password access to different kinds of information. There is also a Learners Area - where only basic information and multimedia about the word you wish to teach are available.
Unique fonts and customisable fields
Note: The Miromaa software is made for Windows only and Windows 10 is recommended. If you have a Mac you would need to install Windows on to your Mac via either Boot Camp or a virtual environment similar to Parallels
