Tigrinya Language Digital Initiatives Symposium highlight:
The mission of the Tigrinya Language Digital Initiatives Symposium is to bring Language, Technology, and Organizational talents together to create a professional and inclusive platform that increases Tigrinya’s footprint in the digital world. The symposium intends to enable Tigrinya speakers to be creators and beneficiaries of Language and Linguistics Technologies to empower and transform their communities through education, research, and development in their own Language. The 2022 symposium is the first step of many that will help us discover talents, identify relevant projects, and inspire collaboration among the experts towards a more significant, inclusive, equitable, and more impactful undertaking to enable technological creativity and collaboration for the greater good of the Tigrinya speaking communities.
