Get Involved

Help us build an open public collection of the world's nearly 7,000 human languages.

Contributing to The Rosetta Project Collection

The Rosetta Project accepts a wide variety of materials that help document the languages of the world. If you would like to help build this open public collection through materials you have assembled or created, please contact and tell us more about them.

Volunteer Opportunities

Ongoing Internships. The Rosetta Project has a volunteer internship program, which helps train researchers in the practice of archiving linguistic documentation as well as providing some exposure to the activities and operation of a nonprofit foundation. Internships are mentored, take place on site, and involve both archive management as well as a special project worked out between the intern and mentor to be completed during the period of the internship. Internships are typically from 2-3 months, and can take place at any time of the year (summer internship slots are popular with students, and tend to be more competitive). If you are interested in becoming a Rosetta Project intern, please send email describing your background and interest along with your résumé (included as text in the body of the message, no attachments please) to

PanLex Project Summer Internship 02013. The PanLex Project project is now offering internships in San Francisco during the summer of 02013. Interns will receive training and practice in lexical data processing, as we add millions of translations to the database. For more information about how to apply, click here.
