A Manifesto for Open Language Technology
- Open localisation: all software should be localisable independently of the producer of the software.
- Open interfaces: all language-related programming interfaces should be open by default.
- Open resources: all language resources should be open and accessible for everyone, given the permission of the language community.
- Accessible standards: language-related international standards should be respected, fully implemented and implementations should be updated regularly.
We believe adherence to the above principles would lead to a better world for indigenous and minority languages, and agree that it is of utmost importance to push ahead with enabling indigenous self-determination in the digital realm.
