|We are from different countries
with different culture, language, background, and environment. Our
blood is different, but we share every bit of this world as we breathe
and as our hearts beat to the rhythm of our intertwined lives.
In today¡¯s vast and complex world of 6.5 Billion
people speaking over 150 official languages and 3,000+ dialects,
the value of inter and trans national and regional communication,
connection, networking, and sharing is inevitable and necessary
means. Our coexistence must not be defined by narrowing down the
communication method, but rather, by opening up more ways to communicate.
In the heart of the ongoing international and intergovernmental
efforts, the issue of Multilingualism has surfaced as a key issue
to address the concerns of numerous countries who fear that Internet
will be dominate in a language that is neither their own nor officially
widely spoken natively around the world.This consortium was established
by those who could envision the state of a genuine Information Society
where Internet is easily accessible and available.
Such state cannot come about unless and foremost the language barrier
is overcome. By promoting the Native Language Internet, whether
it is a solution, a service, technology, and/or a product, this
consortium labor in unison to bring recognition in the need of global
awareness of this human element that must be Trans-implemented in
the process of developing a better Internet world.
We know that this journey is an uphill struggle, but nothing worthwhile
is ever easy.
