« How to ensure a language’s presence in cyberspace? » by Marcel Diki-Kidiri – 2007

As part of the “Information for All” publication series, UNESCO, with the help of the Latin Union and the expert Marcel Diki-Kidiri, has just published a study entitled “Comment assurer la présence d’une langue dans le cyberespace?” (How to ensure a language's presence in cyberspace). According to UNESCO, “cyberspace is open to all the world’s languages, because its infrastructure is not subject to a central authority that decides how it will be used. UNESCO notes that the study attempts to answer questions about what can be done to ensure that languages with limited linguistic, computer, and even human resources can secure their place in cyberspace. The study, in French only, can be viewed on the UNESCO website
