A pilot project to translate Microsoft, IBM and Alt Linux Software into the Tatar language has been launched in Tatarstan
A pilot project to translate Microsoft, IBM and Alt Linux Software into the Tatar language (a language of the Turk group with the Cyrillic alphabet) has been launched in Tatarstan (a Russian constituent republic on the Volga river). The producers have already given their preliminary consent. If the project is a success, the bilingual software will appear in other Russian national republics, Finansovye Izvestia newspaper reports. Experts of the artificial intellect laboratory of Tatarstan's Academy of Sciences and Kazan State University and the Window mission in Moscow started with elaboration of a Russian-language version of Windows-2000 supporting the Tatar language. Its users may work with the Tatar language keyboards. In the future all the Microsoft software will be translated into Tatar. An electronic Russian-Tatar dictionary was worked out by the Institute of Information Problems and the Institute of Language, Literature and Art. Tatarstan is negotiating with IBM and Alt Linux on the translation of the Linux operation system and office applications. There are distant regions in Tatarstan where people cannot use the Russian and English software versions. According to experts, the Tatar localization of the software will take about six months and will be completed by Kazan's 1000th anniversary which will be celebrated on August 30, 2005. Localized programs will, first of all, go to sate bodies, educational and budget institutions in Tatarstan. According to the data from different sources, about 6 million Tatars live in Russia
