I just want to know the volumes of African languages related projects you guys have. If you have any project related to African languages I am ready to work with you. But some sites do not list African languages and most of translation software packages do not support African languages. I am not talking about French, English, Portuguese and other colonized languages. I am talking about pure African languages like Bushman, Somali, Amhairc and others. I know the numbers of user of these languages are very small comparing to other languages, but still there are people (million of people) using these languages everyday. I am looking companies and individual to work together to promote these languages

Try Atlas translations, in London, I think May 6, 2002

Hello,

Well, I am sorry to say that I only know English and Spanish well enough to translate from/into them.



I think you should contact Atlas Translations, I remember they sometimes have Amharic and other African and Asian languages to translate from/into.



Good luck,

Mar
