Transparent Language Inc: The 7000 Languages Project: Bringing world-class technology to under-resourced languages

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The 7000 Languages Project is a non-profit effort to make world-class language learning technology available at no charge to language teams working with lesser-known and under-resourced languages. By partnering with other expert organizations, web- and mobile-delivered learning materials for the 7,000 languages beyond the 100 or so major world languages can be created. These less-common language resources are then made available to Transparent Language’s subscribing universities, libraries, and organizations at no extra charge. The technology for the 7000 Languages Project is donated by Transparent Language, while partner organizations contribute their linguistic expertise and passion. In this presentation, we will discuss what our partner organizations have accomplished, what we are currently working on, how this benefits our academic and public library customers, and how others can get involved. More information about the 7000 Languages Project can be found at http://www.transparent.com/about/7000-languages-project.html.
