Add language for philippines - Tagalog and Cebuano

Adding Tagalog and Cebuano to AIPRM would be valuable and useful for their users because these two languages are widely spoken in the Philippines, and are important languages for communication, commerce, and culture in the country.

Tagalog, also known as Filipino, is the national language of the Philippines and is spoken by over 25 million people as their first language. Cebuano is also a widely spoken language in the Philippines, with over 20 million speakers. These languages are used in a variety of contexts, from everyday conversations to business transactions and official government communications.

By including Tagalog and Cebuano in AIPRM, users who speak these languages would be able to more easily access and utilize the platform’s features, including text generation and analysis. This would improve the overall user experience for Filipino speakers, and make the platform more accessible and inclusive for a wider range of users.

Moreover, given the growing importance of the Philippines as a regional economic and cultural hub, the inclusion of Tagalog and Cebuano in AIPRM could have broader social and economic benefits. It could help facilitate cross-cultural communication and understanding, foster business relationships, and promote cultural exchange between the Philippines and other countries in the region and beyond.

Do you mean a language for the AIPRM extension’s User Interface ?

Right now, the only language officially used is English.

You could easily see this as the standard practice of convenience, in that English has become the closest thing to a ‘lingua franca’ - a language of universal convenience - not because it is the most widely spoken first-language, but because more people in more nations speak, or write, or at least understand, English as one of their languages than any other language we have.

As a simple matter of function and utility, English is the closest thing we have to a true ‘lingua franca’. Even that awful American version :wink:

If we were expanding for pure reach, to talk to even more people, the traditional next languages to add would be French and/or Spanish, because once again ancient colonialism has meant those have become some of the most widely understood first or second languages in places all over the entire world.

That has been the tradition for almost as long as there has been international business, exporting, etc.

But the Internet changed things. When we write HTML we all use a single language that is based on simplified American English. Now, HTML is far more widely shared and used than pretty much any product ever was. It has been around for decades, starting in the 1980s, and yet here we still all are using (as much as possible) one single language, even if we’ve had to learn to specify the exact character-set for so many different nations, keyboard layouts, etc.

The same is true of many other computer languages, of course. Even venerable ancient languages such as BASIC were most often based on simplified English words for commands like RUN and GOTO etc. Why did these break the pattern?

The answer is that Business and Marketing wanted language only for a Top-down, Command and Control type of communication. They had one message from the top, and wanted to broadcast it to as many people as possible, so translation from that one source was cost effective.

In comparison, and by contrast, Programming and Coding were collaborative languages. They were always meant not for top-down broadcasting, but for communicating between peers, and enabling as much communication, and standardization, as possible. One language we’d all agree to use.

If AIPRM were a traditional “We talk, Customers just listen and accept” kind of business, they’d certainly want to go with the old traditions of command and control. But instead, the entire basis of AIPRM is about collaboration and sharing code (prompts), and for that, one language for all, an agreed standard and protocol, is the way to go. Just as with any other kind of collaborative coding.
