Google Wants to Protect 3,000 Endangered Languages

Screen Shot 2013-01-03 at 19.21.07Recently, I saw a Youtube video about a project titled “Endangered Languages Project” powered by Google. Google created a platform for the members or learners of endangered languages. When you sign up, you can share information on this platform. Let’s hear it from Google 🙂

The Endangered Languages Project, is an online resource to record, access, and share samples of and research on endangered languages, as well as to share advice and best practices for those working to document or strengthen languages under threat.

About endangered languages:

Experts estimate that only 50% of the languages that are alive today will be spoken by the year 2100.

The disappearance of a language means the loss of valuable scientific and cultural information, comparable to the loss of a species.

Tools for collaboration between the world communities, scholars, organizations and concerned individuals can make a difference
