From UNL Wiki
The mission of the UNL Programme is to enable all peoples to generate, and have access to, information and knowledge in their native language and culture. The immediate goal of the Programme is to construct the UNL multilingual infrastructure in order to break down linguistic barriers that isolate and exclude a large number of people from the global community. These barriers exist because many people are not familiar with the dominant languages in which culture and knowledge are currently expressed. Its broader goal is to facilitate an interchange of cultural values among people all over the world, and in this way, to contribute to the dialogue among civilisations, to peace and to the development of all nations.
