An online platform that will serve as an open database of educational, scientific, and other materials in Crimean Tatar language will be created in Ukraine.

That was reported by the Ministry of Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories.

“The goal of the project is to make Crimean Tatar language widely used and to ensure its research and sustainable development. It should be noted that UNESCO included Crimean Tatar in the list of endangered languages. The project will also give impetus to the introduction of Crimean Tatar language in the operating systems and online translators. That is, “Qırımtatar tili” should appear in the interface language of your computer,” wrote the Ministry of Reintegration.

Currently the collection of printed and online sources in Crimean Tatar has begun. Anyone can join the creation of the Crimean Tatar National Corpus, added the Ministry.

The project is implemented with the support of the Swiss-Ukrainian EGAP Program by the Eastern Europe Foundation, and Kyiv National University named after Taras Shevchenko.

Earlier this month, a Ukrainian-German school, where the children would study both languages, opened in Berlin.
