The RMA of SADiLaR

The RMA of SADiLaR

The Language Resource Management Agency is starting a new phase in its development as part of the South African Centre for Digital Language Resources (SADiLaR). SADiLaR will gradually take over the various responsibilities of the RMA, but all resources and service will remain active during this transition.

Language Resources at your fingertips

Worldwide, people are increasingly gaining access to electronic devices in a growing variety of languages. South Africans can already use ATMs and spelling checkers in their mother tongues. For developments like these, language technology data and resources (such as electronic texts and word lists) are needed. The more data there is, the smarter the tool or machine will be, facilitating human-machine interaction through a particular language. For this reason, the Department of Arts and Culture (DAC) has established the National Centre for HLT (Human Language Technology) to develop reusable text and speech resources, and the Resource Management Agency (RMA) to manage and distribute these from one central point. The Centre for Text Technology (CTexT®) at the North-West University has been appointed to set up the RMA over the next three years.
