South African Centre for Digital Language Resources
The Department of Science and Technology (DST) launched its first research infrastructure road map in the first week of October 2016. In 2013 the DST embarked on a project of defining a South African Research Infrastructure Roadmap (SARIR), which is the first of its kind on the African continent. The idea of this framework is to prioritise the development of national research infrastructure needs in order to promote the outcomes and quality of research in South Africa. Forming part of this research infrastructure is the set-up of the South African Centre for Digital Language Resources (SADiLAR) to promote and expand South Africa’s indigenous languages.
The RMA will be incorporated into SADiLaR and will focus on the creation, management and distribution of digital language resources as well as applicable software related to all official languages of the country. Some of these resources will be generated through post-graduate research projects. All data and software tools will be made freely available for research purposes.
