About VoxCroft

VoxCroft Analytics builds language technology for low-resource languages across the globe for a variety of applications. We believe that communities should be able to interact online in their native tongues and not mediate the world through acquired foreign languages. At least half of the world’s 7,000 languages (and the respective cultural identities they represent) face extinction over the next 10-20 years unless we enhance their visibility and recognize their crucial role in shaping identity and participation in public life. Languages that enter the space of digital transformation stand a greater chance of survival.
