African Languages and Information and Communication Technology: Localising the Future?
|Volume 4 Issue 2
|Author: Donald Osborne
The dual processes of internationalisation and localisation of
information and communication technologies (ICT)1 are still felt
incompletely and unevenly in Africa. Situated on the disfavored
side of what is commonly referred to as the “digital divide,” 2
Africa has not benefited directly from internationalisation of
ICT as much as it might, largely due to low connectivity and
lack of access, but also to the fact that some aspects of internationalisation
are not widely available or well understood. Africa
also has not yet seen much activity in the matter of localisation
for its languages and cultures even though this is vitally important
for the future use and utility of ICT in the region.
