Language Maintenance on the Internet


Educational Media International Volume 41, Number 1, ISSN 0952-3987


Due to the expanding use of computer networks in Hungary, the Hungarian language has become a grown-up member of the World Wide Web and the Internet. In the past few years, the number of web pages written in Hungarian has significantly increased, since all areas of business, science, education, culture, etc., are eager to make use of the evolving new opportunities and insist on their continuous and updated presence on the Internet. As a result, the Hungarian-language versions of the widely used software have won the market over the English versions, and English-language versions are now is used mostly by IT specialists only, who–recalling their initial difficulties with Hungarian language software–are more aware of the bugs translated and localized software might contain.
