Today we celebrate UNESCO’s International Mother Language Day by announcing the release of the Language Toolbox, a collection of free tools and resources related to Microsoft language technologies, and the addition of Welsh to our Microsoft Translator family. Microsoft has a longstanding commitment to using technology to bridge communication barriers through our Local Language Program, an offering of Microsoft YouthSpark.

Microsoft Local Language Program’s Carla Hurd shares more information on the Microsoft on the Issues blog.
