The first step in creating digital
Tibetan documents is to input them into digital formats.
The bulk of the inputting work is performed at the
Nitartha international Document Input Center
(NIDIC) in Kathmandu, Nepal. A paid staff inputs
important Tibetan texts using computers operating
Tibetan-language word processing programs.
A significant benefit of locating the program in
Nepal is to provide employment opportunities for
the younger generation of local Tibetans and to offer
them training in computer technologies and applications.
The document input center is managed and staffed
by Tibetan-speaking input personnel living in the
Kathmandu area. Nitartha New York provides management
and technical advice to the center.
Nitartha international is particularly grateful for the generous sponsorship of the
Hwa Yue Foundation in making the Nitartha Document Input Center possible.
