19 Apr 2017

UNESCO has announced the publication of its Internet governance glossary in Arabic, an important tool for policymakers, academics, and Internet governance experts. Multilingual support is an important priority of many organisations, with this glossary joining other resources from ICANN (Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, French, and English), as well as DiploFoundation's An Introduction to Internet Governance (2017 edition in Spanish and English,  2016 edition in French and Thai, and earlier editions in seven other languages) and its Internet Governance Acronym Glossary (Spanish and English).

Multilingualism is an important aspect of the promotion and development of cultural diversity on the Internet.

Since its early days, the Internet has been a predominantly English-language medium. According to some statistics, approximately 56% of Web content is in English, whereas 75% of the world’s population does not speak English. This situation has prompted many countries to take concerted action to promote multilingualism and to protect cultural diversity.
