We are happy to present you with the LEM.fm portal in an English version. Nowadays, two opposite powers converge: assimilation and globalization. We are constantly struggling with the assimilation of Rusyns – the struggle is not fair as there are not many of us, and there are even fewer of those who speak their mother tongue correctly. On the other hand, globalization helps us to interact in this enormous world. English has become a global language – the whole world speaks it – we do, too. Let the English versions of the articles go across the big pond. Let everybody in the world know that we still exist and it is not going to change for a long time yet.
The project was possible to realize thanks to many people. Most of all, thanks to the sponsor, the John and Helen Timo Foundation.
Also, young, active Lemko people got involved in the project and they are doing a lot. Let me introduce them:
Maria Silvestri: apart from proofreading the English version, it was she who helped to bring the project to its current stage.
Natalia Horbal: a hard-working, linguistically gifted Anglicist who has translated even this particular sentence for you 🙂
