Description

Increasingly, minority languages like Frisian are supported with digital technologies be they automatic translation, serious games, synthetic voices, online courses, or any number of dedicated mobile apps. These tools can help smaller and under-resourced languages by engaging new learners, facilitating online communities for minority languages, and can also play a role in documentation efforts.
This symposium is dedicated to activities through which researchers, companies and citizens can strengthen Frisian. Speakers from academia, the private sector and government discuss and showcase their work with interactive demonstrations of games and apps.
