Linguist meetings


From 6 to 7 July 2017, an important consultation meeting was held at the headquarters of the AfricAvenir International Foundation with the supervisors and transcribers of the Collective Memory project in order to speed up the finalisation of the work and to agree on the transcription modalities. This meeting was very important for the continuation of the project. It enabled the work of the transcribing and translating linguists to be reframed and reoriented so that it not only corresponded to the general philosophy of the project, but was also easy to use during the editing process. Thus, around the same table, linguists from Cameroon's largest universities: Douala, Yaoundé, and Dschang were brought together.

It was then that all the difficulties related to the transcription and translation operations were discussed and resolved. The professor linguists involved in Africa's Collective Memory project gave practical advice and scientific instructions to ensure that the results of the work remained as faithful as possible to reality. The Project Director, Prof. Kum'a Ndumbe III, reconnected the linguists with the global vision and general guidelines of the Africa's Collective Memory Project. It was also a time to share the technical and IT tools that will enable the linguists to work more objectively and efficiently. This was the case of the specialised software Partitur exitur, the operation of which was presented in detail by Mr Njock David, himself a linguist. It is on this solid basis that all the work of the project is now carried out and delivered for a more satisfactory result.
