Google has been developing a font family called Noto, which aims to support all languages with a harmonious look and feel. Noto is Google’s answer to "tofu", the little ☐☐☐ boxes that appear when your 📱 device doesn't have a font to properly display the 📃 text in a language. The name noto is to convey the 💭 idea that Google’s goal is to see “no more tofu”. Noto has multiple styles and weights, and is 🆓 freely available to all. Because many Kamusi languages use alphabets and scripts that are not supported by default on many systems, we recommend that you install Noto now so you can read any content we provide.

These are the languages for which we have datasets that we are actively working toward putting online. Languages that are Active for you to search are marked with "A" in the list below.
•A = Active language, aligned and searchable
•c = Data 🔢 elicited through the Comparative African Word List
•d = Data from independent sources that Kamusi participants align playing 🐥📊 DUCKS
•e = Data from the 🎮 games you can play on 😂🌎🤖 EmojiWorldBot
•P = Pending language, data in queue for alignment
•w = Data from 🔠🕸 WordNet teams
We are actively creating new software for you to make use of and contribute to the 🎓 knowledge we are bringing together. Learn about software that is ready for you to download or in development, and the unique data systems we are putting in place for advanced language learning and technology:
Our biggest struggle is keeping Kamusi online and keeping it free. We cannot charge money for our services because that would block access to the very people we most want to benefit, the students and speakers of languages around the world that are almost always excluded from information technology. So, we ask, request, beseech, beg you, to please support our work by donating as generously as you can to help build and maintain this unique public resource.
Answers to general questions you might have about Kamusi services.
We are building this page around real questions from members of the Kamusi community. Send us a question that you think will help other visitors to the site, and frequently we will place the answer here.
