We are the developers of the internationally recognised and highly acclaimed Miromaa language technology program which is used for the documentation, conservation and dissemination of our traditional languages. The Miromaa Program has been obtained for use in over 150 plus languages all over Australia and many more internationally.

As well as the continual development of the Miromaa Program, we also administrate two major national language initiatives; coordinating and hosting the Puliima National Indigenous Language and Technology Forum every two years and also creating and managing the Our Languages Website.

Language is the expression of our culture and our land. We cannot have one without the other. We cannot describe our culture and our land if we do not have language.
(Queensland Indigenous Languages Advisory Committee, 2006)

Miromaa Language Technology Program

Miromaa has full multi-media capabilities for the attaching of multiple sound, video and still images to each piece of language evidence recorded, it can store all of your digitised documents including PDF's, Word and Excel document formats. Miromaa can import and export from some of the major analytical linguistic software programs such as Lexique Pro, Toolbox and FLEX which are used internationally, so that your work can benefit future users and you can take benefit of previous work which may have been done on your own language.

As you can see from the map image above, the Miromaa Language Technology Program is being used all over Australia to support the maintenance and documentation of hundreds of Aboriginal languages. These tools are also being used internationally, including New Zealand, Canada and North America.
