DATA XGen Technologies is the associated group company of Data Infosys. They have started first free linguistic email address in the world with the name ‘DATAMAIL.‘ This allows the users to create the email ids in 8 Indian languages, apart from it also supports English and other three foreign languages Arabic, Russian and Chinese.
Soon this email service will be available in 22 languages says Data XGen Technologies. The users can also download the Android and iOS app for their smartphones from Google Play Store and Apple App Store under the name DATAMAIL.
Dr. Ajay Data, Founder and CEO Data XGen Technologies speaking at the launch of World’s First Linguistic Free Email Service says “Indian languages account for less than 0.1% content on world wide web or www (as per IAMAI report). Also over 89% population is a Non-English speaking population which is unable to read and communicate through email as the language used to communicate is English on WWW (World Wide Web).”
He added, “To contribute towards Digital India Mission and Make in India mission, we at Data XGen Technologies, launched the first free ‘indic’ email service under the name ‘DATAMAIL.’”
This linguistic email service will allow people from across India for communicating in 8 regional and one English languages to provide ease of connecting and bridging the digital divide among Indian citizens.
DATAMAIL being the first linguistic email service in the world supporting IDN (Internationalized Domain Name) in Hindi (हिन्दी), Urdu (اردو), Gujarati (ગુજરાતી), Punjabi (ਪੰਜਾਬੀ ਦੇ) , Telugu (తెలుగు), Tamil (தமிழ்), Bengali (বাংলা), Marathi (मराठी), Latin-English.
DATAMAIL is now also launching the international languages for using in Arabic (العَرَبِيَّة), Russian (русский) and Chinese (汉语/漢語) as their mother tongue.
Currently, India is the world’s second-biggest smartphone market with 220mn users and expected further growth very fast. With the connectivity of the Internet, the Indian population has become digitally equipped. But things have to be taken into consideration for achieving greater digital and mobile connectivity. Says Data.
The important issue remains unaddressed largely, i.e., language. So now DATAMAIL can break this barrier and leads towards the Digital India dream.
