Current projects

Here you can find ongoing language advocacy and awareness actions and initiatives organized by the Coalition and its member organizations, and ways to contribute to this work; as well as efforts from other people and organizations which are aligned with the Coalition's mission.

 

We are very much interested in sharing your work around:

  • Documenting and digitally preserving languages.

  • Developing teaching material to encourage new speakers to learn languages, especially Indigenous and endangered languages.

  • Translating important, critical information for linguistically and digitally marginalized groups.

  • Creating virtual communities of speakers by using online platforms to connect, promote and mobilize communities around linguistic and digital rights.

To share your work on this page or on the GCLR newsletter, or propose a collaboration on language advocacy efforts and initiatives:

If you are a localization or internationalization expert, language translation professional, font designer or marketing expert; you can be a part of the effort to digitalize and preserve Indigenous languages.
