We cannot do it without you!
The Limburgish language is underserved and under-resourced and has been increasingly marginalized. Your donation will help us to advocate for language policy reform and develop digital tools to help Limburgers add their voice in their language to the digital world.

The Limburgish Academy connects Limburgish to the digital world. By developing free digital language products, we are giving Limburgers more digital options in their Limburg dialect. As a nonprofit we depend on your support.

The Limburgish Academy was founded in 2007 as a foundation (stichting) registered in Maastricht (the Netherlands). Our goal is to preserve and further develop Limburgish with all its dialects. For this we exploit digital technologies. With digital language products we give speakers of Limburgish more digital possibilities. This makes Limburgish digitally easier to use and more visible. We also give researchers more digital options to study Limburgish. This will allow our digital products to better match the way Limburgers use their language.

Our Team Digital Limburgish collects texts and makes them digitally accessible. Our work is made possible in part by donations and help from volunteers. Do you want to help? Donate or contact us to become a volunteer.
