WordForge Foundation

"The mission of the WordForge Foundation is the defense of minority languages that - due to technological advance - are slowly being replaced by majority languages in schools and workplaces around the world. An important factor that influences this change is that these languages have not been able to acquire the necessary vocabulary for technology and modern office work and computer software has not been translated into them.

"The Foundation refers to these languages as 'Digitally Endangered Languages,' and attempts to fulfill its mission by working directly in several countries on development of technological terminology, as well as on translation and localisation of Free and Open Source Software to the language of the country."

WordForge Project

"The WordForge project attempts to simplify the process of localisation of Software. It is developed with Free and Open Source software in mind, but its process and tools are also applicable to other types of software."
