Lingua Libreウィキメディア・フランス協会 によって開発された企画で、共同で、多言語で視聴覚による集積をフリーライセンスの下で次の理由で構築されることを目的としています。

  • 言語に関し言語知識を、ウィキメディアプロジェクトの内外におけるウェブサイトにおいて視聴覚的な方法で拡散する
  • コミュニティがオンラインの情報にアクセスするのを助け、コミュニティの言語の活力を確実にするために、特に恵まれず、少数派、地域的、口頭または手話による言語のオンライン言語コミュニティの開発を支援する。



Lingua Libre aims to make up for this lack of support by offering an online solution for mass recording, leading to the publication of a collaborative multilingual audiovisual corpus under free licence, whose aim is to document and to revitalize languages by triggering the contribution of new language communities on Lingua Libre and then outside.


Lingua Libre is a tool that allows to record a large number of words in a few hours (up to 1,000 words/hour with a clean word list and an experienced user). It automatizes the classic procedure for recording and adding audio-visual pronunciation files onto Wikimedia projects. Once the recording is done, the platform automatically uploads clean, well cut, well named and apps-friendly audio files, directly to コモンズ.
