Norway increases funding for Sami by $3 million

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

From here today in Norwegian:

The government proposes to allocate a total of 843 million kroner ($152 million) for Sami language purposes in 2012, an increase of around 17 million kroner ($3 million).

Over the past three years the government has provided an increase of 23 million kroner ($4 million) for the Sami language in the government administration and church affairs budget.

Of the budget, 5.246 million kroner ($950,000) has been allocated to the Divvun project, which has developed spell checking and correction programs for North, Lule and south Sami. 2012 is the first year of full operation of Divvun at the University of Tromsø.
