Lingua Libre是一個由法國維基媒體協會開發,致力建造一個多語言、合作性的視聽文集,並以自由許可發放,以供:

  • 在線上、在維基項目和線下以視聽方式,擴展有關語言本身和語言裡面的知識;
  • 支持線上語言群體發展——尤其貧困、地域性、純口述及手語群體——讓社群能獲得線上資訊及保持這些群體的語言活力。


The lacks of diversity and orality in Wikimedia projects and on the web in general limit the ability of Internet users to communicate and contribute online to various web platforms where they cannot find content and communities sharing their language. Among the regional minority languages that are oral or signed, they threaten in particular the poorly endowed ones, many of which are currently in danger of extinction and for whom inclusion on the web is a major challenge and opportunity. Indeed, of the 7,000 languages in existence today, it is estimated that only 2,500 will survive to the next century and only 250 (less than 5%!) will make their digital ascent, a factor which is yet essential for their vitality. Current initiatives by linguists and activists to document and share data, resources and content online in endangered languages do not directly contribute to the development of a digitally-ascendant linguistic community of Internet users, and thus remain limited in their impact.

Lingua Libre旨在補償以上的支援缺乏,因此提供一個可供大量錄音的線上方案,進而出版一個合作性的多語言視聽文集,並以自由許可發放。此文集透過激發新語言群體在「自由語言」內外的貢獻記錄活化語言。


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 维基共享资源.
