Tamil and Gujarati have joined Hindi to become the second and third Indian languages as part of Oxford Dictionaries global languages initiative.

Objective of the programme:

Here's what Judy Pearsall, Director for Oxford Dictionaries said:

·     "OGL is a valiant initiative from Oxford University Press for a modern challenge and a huge chance," she said. "Digital communication across the globe is dominated by English and other major worldwide languages such as Chinese and Spanish.
·         We are at a significant time in the nexus of the internet and its impact on language diversity and viability, and the time to act is now."
·         "As we expand more languages for OGL, we are putting a special focus on Indian languages," added Pearsall. "India has an extraordinary linguistic landscape with a prosperity and history that is found in few other places on the planet.
·         Yet with only 35 per cent of the Indian population using the Internet, OGL's mission to help digital communication through building resources for the world's languages is clearer than ever. We are very proud to be launching Tamil and Gujarati dictionaries as part of our global mission."
