UDHR in Unicode

The goal of the UDHR in Unicode project is to demonstrate the use of Unicode for a wide variety of languages, using the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) as a representative text. The UDHR was selected because it is available in a large number of languages from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) at http://www.ohchr.org/EN/UDHR/.

You can access the various translations using the map below, or via the lists of translations (by language name, code or completion stage). We also have some aggregate documents showing all or part of the translations.

You are encouraged to contribute to this project by reviewing existing translations or by providing new ones. Many thanks to those who already contributed!
