Museums, zoos, botanical gardens, and many other public spaces work hard to produce explanatory information for their visitors, but have no space or expertise to translate that information for the dozens of languages spoken by the tourists who flow through. We can work with translation teams to produce 📃 texts that visitors can read on their 📱 mobile devices as they explore the space around them. At the same time, each institution will be able to share its unique cultural content with online visitors 🌍 worldwide who will never be able to visit in person. This system will piggyback on EatUp! and add cool new interactive programs for language learners to participate. All we need to go forward is a 💛😇 GOLD Angel to underwrite development costs.
These are the languages for which we have datasets that we are actively working toward putting online. Languages that are Active for you to search are marked with "A" in the list below.
•A = Active language, aligned and searchable
•c = Data 🔢 elicited through the Comparative African Word List
•d = Data from independent sources that Kamusi participants align playing 🐥📊 DUCKS
•e = Data from the 🎮 games you can play on 😂🌎🤖 EmojiWorldBot
•P = Pending language, data in queue for alignment
•w = Data from 🔠🕸 WordNet teams
We are actively creating new software for you to make use of and contribute to the 🎓 knowledge we are bringing together. Learn about software that is ready for you to download or in development, and the unique data systems we are putting in place for advanced language learning and technology:
Our biggest struggle is keeping Kamusi online and keeping it free. We cannot charge money for our services because that would block access to the very people we most want to benefit, the students and speakers of languages around the world that are almost always excluded from information technology. So, we ask, request, beseech, beg you, to please support our work by donating as generously as you can to help build and maintain this unique public resource.
Answers to general questions you might have about Kamusi services.
We are building this page around real questions from members of the Kamusi community. Send us a question that you think will help other visitors to the site, and frequently we will place the answer here.
