We're proud to donate our technology to 7000 Languages, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to empower communities around the world to teach, learn, and sustain their endangered languages.
Who is 7000 Languages?
Since 2016, 7000 Languages has acted as its own independent and thriving 501c3 non-profit organization, providing free language resources for communities around the world. Over the years, they have created 46 courses in 22 under-resourced languages through a deeply collaborative course creation process with their community partners. 7000 Languages is proud to be the recipient of Transparent Language’s continued generous donation of technology and support, which makes much of what they do possible.
7000 Languages’ leadership and staff have backgrounds in language documentation, language revitalization, curriculum development, and Native education. They combine Transparent Language's innovative technology tools with a focus on resources to meet the unique circumstances of endangered languages such as: incorporation of archived materials, best practices for eliciting and documentation language from elder speakers, as well as a curriculum development approach that centers Indigenous culture, practices, and ways of knowing.
