Improving Information Infrastructure and Access to Knowledge in Indian languages
The Indic project is an Indian civil society initiative that empowers Indian language usage in computer, mobile and other devices.
Our work is focused on three key areas:
- Products – people-centric products for Indian language experience in user devices.
- Technology – robust, free and open technical solutions that bring the Indian language experiences to life across multiple platforms.
- People – who value and advocate for native language experience and rights of native language users.
The Indic project is also a community of technologists, thinkers, builders and practitioners of Indian language technology who work together for improving information infrastructure and access to knowledge in Indian languages.
Indic Project is previously participated in GSoC's 2007 , 2012 and 2013 under the name of Swathanthra Malayalam Computing(SMC). This year we apply under the banner of Indic Project, our pan Indian language initiative - to get more developer attention and student contributions from all indian languages.
