Google While I sometimes see Dutch as an endangered language, reality is that with nearly 30 million speakers worldwide, we're actually doing pretty well. Sadly, this can't be said for the 3000 truly endangered languages of the world - nearly half of the world's total number of languages is on the verge of extinction, and with it, large amounts of human culture are in danger of disappearing forever. In collaboration with several universities and language institutions, Google has launched the Endangered Languages Project to document these languages - textually, visually, and auditorially.

Voilà une nouvelle très intéressante, surtout après l'article de la semaine dernière :

Malheureusement, Google ayant toujours eu de sérieuses difficultés à faire travailler ses différents sous-groupes en synergie (Chrome et le navigateur d'Android en est un bon exemple), je ne m'attends pas à ce que cela se traduise par un support accru des langues étrangères (en dehors de Google Search).
