Dear Colleagues,

I just thought I would mention that I have been working with a friend and
colleague at Microsoft on developing autocompletion for minority languages.
They have an app called 'Swiftkey' that is available in over 300 languages
and they are always eager to add more.

Personally I think that things like whether mobile phones support a
language will be one of the key factors in which languages are sustainable
in the long run.

So, I want to invite any of you out there, if you think the communities you
work with would be interested in having their language supported, and you
have some linguistic data (continuous text of a conversation register in
the orthography that users would want) that you can share with me, I would
be very happy to work with you and my friend at Microsoft to add the
language(s) you work on.
