Did you know that there are about 6,000 languages spoken throughout the world, and half of those are projected to be in danger of being lost forever over the next century?

Today is International Mother Language Day, a day designated to celebrate the multitude of unique languages spoken by people all over the world.

At Microsoft, we support the preservation of this element of culture through our Local Language Program, and in honor of today, International Mother Language Day, announce support for several new languages in Windows 7 and Office 2010.

For more information on the Local Language Program and Microsoft’s efforts around International Mother Language Day, read this post on the Microsoft Unlimited Potential Blog and this feature story on the Microsoft News Center.
