With a population of over 1.2 billion and 22 official languages, India is a great example of a multi-cultural and multi-lingual society. With a literacy rate of around 60%, the average educated Indian can speak more than 2 languages and many of them 3 languages. Add to that the subcontinental countries Bangladesh, Bhutan, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan which all work as a part of the ecosystem in the region. This webinar provides insights into the huge opportunity for the language industry that remains largely ignored due to many myths and misconceptions about India. We will look at some unique success stories and examples to support our case.
