Language barriers and the small language sections[edit]

Dear colleagues.

How to be a non-English speakers? what is being done to overcome the language barrier? It is necessary to promote the rapid expansion of text translators. Looking for voice translators.

How can I help small language sections? Big and strong language projects to develop a strong, small and weak language areas are lagging behind. We need concrete actions to support small language sections.

Sorry for my bad English. But I well know their native language - Bashkir. We are trying to develop a wiki projects in the Bashkir language. In our community there is no one who knows the English language.
