Did you know that between fifty to ninety percent of the world’s languages are predicted to disappear in the next century, many with little or no significant documentation?
The Rosetta Project is a global collaboration of language specialists and native speakers building a publicly accessible online archive of ALL documented human languages.


The Rosetta Project About Us page best sums up their cause.
Could you imagine the world incurring a loss of between fifty to ninety percent of its current languages? It could happen; many languages are already unspoken, dead, and forgotten.
That’s some serious stuff, but the Rosetta Project has some serious help, too.
Supporters of the project include Stanford University Libraries, The National Science Foundation, The National Science Digital Library, and The Long Now Foundation.
By the very nature of your profession as a voice talent, it is your duty to help preserve language, dialects, and accents. The Rosetta Project is a noble cause that will serve generations to come, documenting living and extinct languages… but only with your help.
If you speak an endangered language or know someone who does, visit the Rosetta Project to contribute in any way that you can to catalog the language and ensure that it is remembered, and perhaps, spoken or studied, for centuries to come.
To date, the Rosetta Project provides over 100,000 pages of content and has documented over 2,500 languages. The project is the largest of its kind on the Internet.
Join in the crusade by visiting The Rosetta Project here.
Best,
Stephanie
