Performance Timeline:     One (1) Year  

 

Project Cost Estimate:               $25,000.00

 

The following proposal is submitted to provide a model software program for capturing and computerizing as much of the dialects and languages worldwide, which are near extinction.

 

We will provide the software, the hardware and the manpower to expedite this program. What we seek for is the travel cost, salaries and living expenses for our language field associates.

 

 

A.   Problem.

 

A good many languages and dialects are becoming extinct because a strategic plan has not been implemented to capture, record and computerize them for posterity.

 

B.    Products.

 

The np Series Language Translator Software Program will provide field associates with the tools to input the language information into an established format for general use and publishing.

 

C.   Process.

 

We will provide Blank Programs installed in laptops with an English-to-(target language) and a (target language)-to-English dictionary format, plus a simplified Phrase Processor.

 

The np Series Translator Programs are written in C+++ computer language, with open-ended database files. This allows for on-the-spot editing and reconciliation. 

 

D.   Importance.

 

The importance of this project lies in the fact that we can finally take immediate steps to reverse the loss of languages and dialects worldwide. Additionally, by publishing the results on the internet, more people will have immediate access to the information and they may become interested in learning these languages and dialects, thus saving them for the future.

 

E.    Price/Budget

 

Estimated Cost….$25,000 Per Language

 

Budget for One Year…$25,000.00

 

For Travel & Living Allowance……ONLY.
