NEW PORTAL: African Language Technology (AfLaT)

the below sent to me by Gilles-Maurice de Schryver,

ANNOUNCING A NEW PORTAL: African Language Technology (AfLaT)

Interest in language technology research for African languages has
seen a tremendous increase in recent years. This is marked by the
growing availability of digital corpora, dictionaries and tools for
many (formerly) resource-scarce African languages. The AfLaT website
aims to catalogue these resources for the benefit of researchers
interested in African language technology. contains a steadily growing collection of bibliographic
resources, web links and tools, provided by AfLaT members. We would
like to invite you to join this community effort and share
information, discuss research topics or just simply browse through
the available content. Registration is free of charge.

We hope to see you soon!
