Hi everyone,

-> At risk of digital extinction: Europe's smaller languages fight to survive
The internet and its technologies are eroding many languages, especially in the Baltic countries. What can be done about it?
The Baltic countries are a hotbed of multilingualism in Europe. Bilingualism is the norm in Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia; trilingualism is increasingly the new standard. If you get lost in the old cities of Riga, Vilnius or Tallinn, chances are pretty good you'll find somebody to ask for directions who speaks your language.

Hi Gérard, everyone
It is true that the English language dominates internet because it expresses better technology, software, and business. It is a shame for smaller languages. They have to concentrate on different subjects. Anyway is it a true big threat ?
