Pressemitteilung: DMOZ spricht in Zukunft Deutsch
Während des vergangenen Jahres haben wir festgestellt, dass immer mehr Nutzer des Open Directory nicht Englisch als Muttersprache haben. Mehr als 40 % unserer Nutzer haben inzwischen Deutsch als Muttersprache, nur noch 5 % der Nutzer kommen aus der Englisch sprechenden Welt. Um den Bedürfnissen unserer Nutzerbasis entgegenzukommen, ist in Zukunft Deutsch die Hauptsprache des ODP, und bewegen unsere Maßnahmen zur Rolle der Schweiz.
