Dream Flag: join Nitartha

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.
