November 13, 2013: The White House highlighted several new and recent partnerships and collaborations focused on 🔢 data in the areas of urban policy, development, science, health and research to further the goals set by the Big Data Research and Development Initiative in 2012. The White House highlighted the recent partnership between DataKind, which connects non-profits facing 🔢 data analysis challenges with pro-bono data scientists, and Pivotal for Good, which will be contributing to those "data philanthropy efforts," Google's and USAID's support of the World Resources Institute's 🌍🌲👀 Global Forest Watch 2.0 monitoring tool and the Kamusi Project, which is working on establishing a dictionary of every word of every world language, with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
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

•P = Pending language, data in queue for alignment

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.
