WHAT ABOUT MULTILINGUALISM?

Here we are. In 21 century. Surrounded by all kinds of people from different cultures and of course talking different languages. To speak with other nationalities we mostly choose English language. It is the easiest way.

But can we say this also for mobile apps?

Is it really necessary and enough to make apps just for English speaking people?

We think there is a better way to deal with these questions. That's why we decided to promote linguistic, cultural diversity and of course multilingualism. 

Slowly, step by step, we translate our app into different languages. Today is UNESCO International Mother Language Day. We are celebrating it with Italian translation. Hooray. Here is our app in Italian version. 


"Languages are the most powerful instruments of preserving and developing our tangible and intangible heritage. All moves to promote the dissemination of mother tongues will serve not only to encourage linguistic diversity and multilingual education but also to develop fuller awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions throughout the world and to inspire solidarity based on understanding, tolerance and dialogue."—from the United Nations International Mother Language Day
