Project Alliance

PanLex collaborates closely with The Rosetta Project at The Long Now Foundation. The Rosetta Project is working to build an open, public, digital collection of documentation on the world's nearly 7,000 languages. Alongside this digital collection, the project has also created The Rosetta Disk, an analog backup designed to last for thousands of years.


The initial research that created the PanLex project was conducted at the Turing Center of the University of Washington.
Initial sponsorship, management, financial support, and research collaboration were provided by Utilika Foundation.
