"President Nursultan Nazarbayev in his Address "Strategy-2050" presented to the people of Kazakhstan new vision of state language development for the forthcoming years. Undoubtedly, language needs modernization. Limitation and not present of the maintenance of our language prevent it to step widely out of a life and the school program.
It is necessary that any person could be realized wholly as the personality and as the professional, remaining in a bosom of the native language. For this purpose the modern and demanded content concerning education, science, economy, business, technologies, modern culture, entertainments, etc. is required. Any language is attractive and strong therefore large-scale work on creation of the interesting, best-selling contents in the Kazakh language is necessary. Creation of an original content important part of this work, but, certainly, other languages are the main source.
I think for this reason the President indicated the need of flexible and pragmatic approach to translational business and terminology. As you remember, our project "Kazakhsha Wikipedia" was started in June, 2011. Following the results of the international Wikimania-2011 conference, the project "Kazakhsha Wikipedia" is called Wikipedia of the year (the most noticeable growth within a year, both on number and volume of articles, and on number of active editors).
The purpose of this project is development of kazakh-language part of the global encyclopedia Wikipedia. Articles of the encyclopedia are created by users who act as editors," Kenzhekhanuly said.
