In May, this year, the Sindhi language accomplished a noteworthy achievement by turning into the first language from Pakistan to be chosen for digitization by the Universal Dependencies, a joined venture of Stanford University and Google.
Universal Dependencies (UD), created in 2005, is a current venture attempting to change over languages into machine-readable arrangements. It has, until now, chosen 100 languages, including Sindhi out of the 6,000 human languages spoken worldwide.
Dr. Mazhar Ali Dootio, a computational linguitist said English is already digitized in this manner it is secure, adding Sindhi for the UD system implies that it will presently turn into a universal language and is on the way of digitization.
Dr. Dootio said, after the UD expansion, Sindhi will presently be available online for translation through more than 150 tree banks.
He stated, “Sindhi can be digitized in the following 10 years.”, if the government helps, which it isn’t right now, the process can be finished soon, in six to seven years. Whenever Sindhi is digitized, it will join English, as one of only a few languages which are totally digitized.
