Google Translate and Frisian

In our time of globalisation and digitisation digital visibilty has become one of the most important preconditions for (minority) language survival. The most salient aspect of this visibility is machine translation, a service which is provided by Google Translate. Our department now has joined other Frisian institutions in organising a bottom up Frisian Google Translate Event to which as many as possible literate Frisians are invited to contribute.

Join the efforts to translate as many English sentences into Frisian, because only with enough translations Frisian will become a part of Google Translate. Our Department of Frisian Language and Culture, together with Taalburo Popkema, organise a Frisian translate day on september 26. Take a look at this event on the Event page for more information or on their Facebook event!
