We use statistical techniques to identify blog language. That means that our algorithm decides what language a blog is in by looking at the text content, and not at any language attributes in the markup. Weblogs with fewer than 500 bytes of text content are not included in this list.
How reliable is our algorithm? We're currently doing statistical sampling to find out, and will post results in this table when they are ready.
Welcome to , the Internet service in Catalan; a free service, independent of any business, entity or association.
The objective of is to provide Catalan-speaking communities with a point of reference on the Internet which can link us together through our language --a data base, a Catalan area-- in short, a focal point in the Net for Catalan in the world. We want to communicate with all the regions in which Catalan is still a living language, and include all Catalan communities throughout the world.
At present this service has no commercial or profit motives. Its only objective is the Catalan language itself, a language minimized even in the lands where it belongs.
Our website, unique in the Net, is destined to communicate and reflect the opinions and feelings of Catalans, a people with their own language and age-old culture, yet without a formal State and currently divided by political and historical circumstances into several separate communities with little relationship between them.
In the upper left-hand box of the heading on this page, you can add a new URL. only admits webs written in Catalan.
In the first row you will find information about our language. From left to right: different aspects of Catalan, the current situation of the language in its various linguistic zones, new developments in the Internet and graphic browsing, with comments.
In the next two files are network resources in our language, which can be searched using a branching thematic tree. To search for information which is not in Catalan, use other search engines. Some of these have, like us, a Spanish version, but all of them, in contrast to , accept pages in Spanish. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any doubts, comments or problems.
