Manifest per un Youtube en català
The Catalan Language is currently the seventh language in Europe with more than 12 millions of speakers in total. The European regions in which this language is spoken are Catalonia, The Valencian Country (where catalan is also known as "valencian"), the Balearic Islands, "Franja de Ponent" area (Aragón), the state of Andorra, L'Alguer region (Italy) and North Catalonia (France - Languedoc).
Youtube webpage is now presented in Deutsch, two kinds of English (UK and USA), two kinds of Spanish too (España and latinoamérica), French, Italian, Nederlands, Polski, two kinds of Portuguese (Standard and Brasil), Svenska, Russian, Czech, Hindi, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. We vindicate the right to be also included in the list of languages available. We want Català/catalan to be included in this list of languages.
We think Youtube should keep expanding in that direction, including new languages that would call the attention and appeal more users and videos if they can have one in their own mother tongue.
Here are some numbers and facts to illustrate our vindication:
-- Searching on Google "site:youtube.com" in Catalan language produces more than 269.000 results of videos uploaded in catalan language or users using catalan language.
-- Most Google products and other Internet companies such as Mozilla, Fotolog (where flog.cat achieved and helped catalan translation), Microsoft, Facebook among others, have been offering their products in Catalan for a long time with an important success.
-- Catalan is the second most used language in blogosphere, according to NITLE Web census: http://www.hirank.com/semantic-indexing-project/census/lang.html
-- Catalan language has had a top-level internet domain (.CAT) since February 2006, with more than 40,000 sites with this domain until today.
As you can imagine from the numbers given above, the potential of new users from the Catalan speaking regions of Europe should not be neglected and would represent an important growth. Furthermore, catalan is a more spoken language than some of the languages currently available on Youtube.
Finally, we would like to offer our help to Youtube in the task of translating and also helping in Catalan help support.
