Anil Jain, CEO, NIXI says that “Ensuring that language is not a barrier to the adoption of technology is key for digital inclusion and growth. Making email addresses available in local languages is an exciting step to making modern communications and collaboration tools more accessible and easier to use for all. You can have technology use the language of people, and not require people/citizens to first learn the traditional language of technology.”
“For India to become truly digital, we need to make technology accessible and productive for all, irrespective of the language they may speak, write or read. With more Indians accessing the internet for the first time, it is imperative to develop Indian language technologies and provide more and more services in language of individual’s choice. This closely aligns with the Indian government’s efforts to usher in a new era of digital empowerment through initiatives such as Digital India and mission to empower every individual and government organization in the state to achieve more. With technology, you have the power to change, transform, and solve anything,” says Dr. Ajay Data, Founder & CEO, Data Xgen Technologies.
