I greatful for the people who are committed in developing this dictionary. It will be a platform for further development of a dictionary.
I suggest few things. First you should do some research about the different dialects of afaan oromo and you shoud be careful in the spelling of the words, both Afaan Oromo and English. Second some meaning you gave are somehow vage. For example 'safuu' is translated as 'abnormal' which I do not think is the equivalent meaning.

What are you doing could be useful in the future; however, I afraid that your are missing some words in the way to write Oromo alphabet. You should know that the Oromo language should be written what you say. For example, you said, "legeen" but I would say laggeen.
I just don’t know this could be your dialect and the way your learn how to write. What you write is “magaallan” as I understood is “bifa/colour”. If I wore you, I would say “Magaalottii or magaalottan”
As well you said “Oromiyaa beeyte of laali!” I would write beytee because y could be read as a half vowel. I did not mean to discourage you but to inform you prepare better
