Via: The Hindu

Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi on Thursday gave a call for translating all the literary treasures of Tamil into other Indian and world languages.

Inaugurating the Tamil Internet Conference (TIC) and the seminar of the World Classical Tamil Conference here, Mr. Karunanidhi also said the writings on Tamilology and Tamil race in Greek, French, German and other languages should be translated into Tamil.

Books and documents on Tamilology available in any part of the world should be converted into electronic format and arrangements should be made to provide universal access to the treasures. Emphasising that Tamil should be used in every field, the Chief Minister said dictionaries of different kinds and encyclopaedias of different fields should be produced.

He appealed to scholars and other participants of the seminar and TIC to advise the State government on the future course of action to be taken in this regard.
