More than 3,500 of the world’s languages are likely to become extinct in the near future. Of the 200+ languages on Viki, nearly 25 percent are classified as endangered or emerging languages.
We’ve partnered with Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages to highlight the role technology is playing in helping to revive these languages. Watch our documentary “Manx: Reviving a Language”.
You can also help keep languages and cultures alive by learning how to subtitle on Viki.com.
