The Igalapedia project coined from Igala Encyclopedia is an NGO initiated to promote African Culture and Tradition. While presenting Igala Land, Language and her people as a true portrayal of African identity, we pilot program for developing indigenous Nigerian languages and also teach how to speak the Igala language. IGALA language is one of the major tribes in Nigeria, West Africa, they are found in Kogi State majorly to the east of River Niger and west of Benue-Niger confluence. We teach people of all ages the Igala language while we encourage the speakers to improve and sustain their ability in the the use of the dialect.

The project which started as a personal language learning app in 2009 was incorporated as IGALAPEDIA PROJECT in 2012. Igalapedia went through series of transformation over time and has been remodelled  into a Heritage Social Medial Network (HECIAL) and a humanitarian service provider. The aforementioned remodelling gave birth to an NGO inline with CAC CAMA 1992 as incorporated trustee currently bearing IGALAPEDIA LANGUAGES AND CULTURAL DOCUMENTATION FOUNDATION.

As of 2012, We were registered to publish books and build web based application for language studies and cultural documentation with particular attention to World Minority Languages and those on awaiting list of extinction. We identify what today’s people like and thus utilising the power of social media network beyond connecting people in working toward accomplishment of agenda 4 and 17 of Sustainable Development Goal(s) and corresponding target(s). We built, host and maintain apps around the hype for harnessing resources to document and preserve African local content in electronic format.

Igala Encyclopedia

The Igalapedia name was coined from our proprietary software for language research and development called “The Igala Encyclopedia“. The software is a customised desktop application that is synchronised with the services of http://www.igalapedia.com for studying reference works that contains information on all branches of knowledge with particular attention to languages and cultural documentation in a comprehensive manner.

Before things fell apart!, each and every language of the world has a unique cultural wisdom and ecological history that was answering fundamental questions which distinguish them as a people. While some world languages are standing bold on digital media in the form of documentation asking for improvement, majority of African languages are yet to find their place in this sphere of digital age. Over the years, so many articles were written, read and listened in conferences and seminars about how minority languages are dying in the hands of language imperialism. And today, social-media networks have come to stay only to be multiplying by the days. While people like to share their feelings and status with friends, we are here to encourage them to learn and also share what they knew about their native languages.

Throwing our weight behind such a humanitarian gesture, needless to re-invent wheel.  HECIAL is a social interaction ground for discussing culture and languages. While looking out for existing language research and development platform with similar aims and objectives, we found solace in partnering with IGALAPEDIA LANGUAGES AND CULTURAL DOCUMENTATION, as their name suggest, Igalapedia is an intervention project working in tandem with HECIAL to alleviate impact of language imperialism on world minority languages. The initiative is working towards agenda 4 and 17 of Sustainable Development Goal(s) and corresponding target(s).

Working towards building a data-set for machine translation of world minority languages in the likes of Nigeria linguistic communities require a huge voluntary network of linguists, learners and social enthusiast. Translation into popular languages over the internet appeared ostensibly simple procedure, but there lies a complex cognitive operation. To decode the meaning of the source text in its entirety, the translator must interpret and analyse all the features of the text, a process that requires in-depth knowledge of the grammar, semantics, syntax, idioms, etc., of the source language as well as the culture of its speakers. The translator needs the same in-depth knowledge to re-encode the meaning in the target language. All these operations require extensive lexicons with morphological, syntactic, semantic information and large sets of rules. Given enough data, machine translation programs often work well enough for a native speaker of one language to get the approximate meaning of what is written by the other native speaker.

The difficulty is getting enough data of the right kind to support the machine translation method that will be suitable for Nigerian languages. To this end, a large multilingual corpus of data is needed for statistical methods while the grammar methods need a skilled linguist to carefully design the grammar that the system will use.

The biggest question is HOW ARE WE GOING TO GET THIS DATA from the Nigeria multi-ethnic linguistic demography?

To achieve the common aims and objectives, HECIAL team volunteered to build a social interaction ground for discussing culture and languages. All the tools built for development of Igala language will be replicated into numerous languages for the benefit of other African minority languages and those world languages on awaiting list of extinction. Prominent among the apps available for translation into other languages are listed below…
