Google launches protection plan for endangered languages
Mexico City: In a bid to save dying languages of the world, Internet giant Google has unveiled an online information swap platform where people can find, share and stockpile information about the dialects that face the crisis of disappearing.
The website namely endangeredlanguages.com is planned in such a way to allow users to upload video, audio, or text files of more than 3,000 endangered languages. The website will also persuade the users to remember recordings of rare dialects.
Miguel Alba, Google`s Mexico marketing chief was quoted saying to an agency that “It is an open, on-line platform where anybody can get on and start sharing materials in those languages which are in danger of being lost”.
According to an Endangered Languages video posted at Google-owned video-sharing venue YouTube, only half of the approximately 7,000 languages spoken today are expected to survive past the end of this century.
