2017 Wrap-up of Indic Language Technology | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

The key takeaways include the fact that Indic language internet users (234 mil) have already surpassed English users (175 mil), and that this trend will only accelerate as time goes by. 90% of Indians coming online for the first time over the next 5 years will do so in their own language, bringing those numbers to a projected 536 mil Indian language users vs 199 English users.
According to the Digital Indian Language Report by Reverie Language Technologies, Hindi, Marathi, and Gujarati are the 3 most used Indian languages online, even though Gujarati is not among the top 3 Indian languages by native speakers.
