DHAKA: Google has set out to save the world’s dying languages.
In an alliance with scholars and linguists, the Internet powerhouse introduced an Endangered Languages Project website where people can find, share, and store information about dialects in danger of disappearing.
‘People can share their knowledge and research directly through the site and help keep the content up-to-date’, project managers Clara Rivera Rodriguez and Jason Rissman said in a Google blog post, reports The Straits Times.
‘A diverse group of collaborators have already begun to contribute content ranging from 18th-century manuscripts to modern teaching tools like video and audio language samples and knowledge-sharing articles.’
