SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In the age of globalization in which more people are pushed to use the major languages in their business and everyday lives, there is one app that wants to continue to allow people throughout the world communicate in their native tongues despite the digital-era push towards a homogenous society.
Kika Keyboard is the only smartphone application that has a team of linguists and engineers working together to make sure the younger generations, who tend to communicate via text and messaging apps, have the opportunity to communicate in their native languages. Where other tech companies have ignored the needs of larger alphabets and distinct characters needed for some lesser-known languages, Kika Tech and its Kika Keyboard product have stepped up and focused on providing this invaluable service.
"We have observed the transition from the analog era to the digital era, and if we want our language to survive, we have to make more applications like Kika Keyboard," - Rail Salminov, Bashkort Projects Community Coordinator.
Recently CCTV News America spoke to Rail Salminov who lives in a place called Bashkortostan (a Russian republic) and discovered that nearly 80% of the republic's population that uses smartphones had downloaded and use the Kika Keyboard app for their text-based communication. Previously their only option was to type in Russian, which is similar but not the same as their native Bashkir.
Another reason for the high conversion rates, is that Kika Keyboard does not only support their language and nearly 70 other languages, it is also one of the world's top downloaded keyboard apps in the Google Play store and comes with 1600 emojis, plus hugely popular stickers and GIFs.
Kika Tech is not stopping here though, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility mission, Kika's engineers are also designing keyboards for the Tartar and Romansh languages, along with an updated French keyboard that will finally give the French all the intricate characters and accents that their language requires but have been absent from the normal French language keyboards.
