Leena, aided by Microsoft's Local Language Program, recently led her people to undertake an audacious experiment: To tr*nsl*t* the entire Windows operating system and Office software into their tongue. Nunavut residents who sign up for Inuktitut computer classes are astonished upon entering the classroom to catch sight of their own unique native letters and words replacing terms like "file," "save" and "print." By inventing new words or repurposing old ones, a dedicated team re-wrote the entire English computer vocabulary, tens of thousands of words, into this ancient northern tongue. The new Inuktitut app for iPhone and iPad continues this trend, expanding the language into new tech environments.
"tens of thousands"?

A bheil uiread de dh'fhacail coimpiutair ann? :mc:

'S dòcha gum biodh e inntinneach an liosata aca fhaicinn, mar choimeas ri liostaichean againne.

Seadh, bi "tens of thousands" de dh'fh'aclan ann ri eadar-theangachadh san teagsa air fad, ach cha bhi agad ris am meud seo a chruthachadh. Mar eisimpleir, tha mu 6 mìle facal aig prìomh fhaidhle a' bhathar-bhuig a chleachdas sinn an seo, ach cha do chruthaich sinn 6 mìle facal ùra!
