Last month, I talked about the whiz bang process we use to transform the data we have locked away in our database into the printed volumes that you can order from your favorite bookseller.

Sometime in the next few weeks the Ethnologue 18th edition print volumes should become available through your preferred bookseller.

In recognition of International Mother Language Day, we are happy to be able to update the Ethnologue to its 18th edition.

Happy New Year from all of us here at Ethnologue Central!

Our overlords and task masters have ordered us to take a break here (not even to answer emails!), so this post will be short. As I write, we are all resting in our cells getting ready for the exciting things to come in 2015.

Ethnologue booksWe're happy to announce that the Ethnologue, 17th edition, is now available in print.

Along with the online edition of the Ethnologue, we have been working hard here at Ethnologue Central to create a number of print and printable products for those who still prefer the feel of paper between their hands.

Last month we launched a new way for Ethnologue users to interact with the editors by adding a feedback function to the website. In the short time period since that feature was introduced a few people have found it and we have begun to receive some very helpful contributions.

Well, as you can tell, we didn't make our goal of getting the updated data online by International Mother Language Day. As with many computer-based operations, we are Real Close though and expect to see not only new data but new online features in place Real Soon Now.

The updated Ethnologue.com website went online in February 2013 with the publication of the 17th edition of the Ethnologue data.
