Singapore launches mobile app for Tamil language

Computer
SINGAPORE: Singapore has launched a mobile app to kindle interest and help young children understand the Tamil language, one of the four official languages in the city state.

The "Arumbu" app was launched at the opening of the 14th Tamil Internet Conference on Saturday which is being attended by 150 Tamil speaking delegates from Singapore and 200 from 10 countries.

"Pre-school children can soon benefit from the Arumbu app. It harnesses audio and visual technologies to inspire an interest in the Tamil language among young children, " said S Iswaran, Singapore Minister in the Prime Minister Office, while opening the conference.

Singapore has always welcomed the use of technology to cultivate the Tamil language.

"We have successfully developed mobile apps and academic software such as Singai Agaram, an English to Tamil and Tamil to Tamil digital dictionary to facilitate and encourage the use of the Tamil language, " Iswaran said.

"Our efforts towards promoting the Tamil language and reaching out to the public through mass media technologies are also noteworthy, he said.

Earlier this year, MediaCorp launched an online Tamil news and current affairs portal to allow consumers to follow major developments within and outside Singapore.

Last month, the local Tamil news bulletins, broadcast daily on MediaCorp's Vasantham (Tamil) channel, began Tamil subtitling following requests from the general public and the deaf community.

"Many languages face the risk of being lost to future generations if we do not take steps to make them relevant to today's young people, Iswaran said.
