In July 2019, the National Museum of the Holodomor Genocide launched the International project “Audio Guide for Everyone”. The project provided for the translation of the text of the museum tour into 33 languages in order to place information on audio guides.
An audio tour in 33 languages is now available at the Museum, which is perhaps the largest language variation of any museum in the world. For 1.5 years, the museum staff, together with volunteers, NGOs and embassies, created, translated and read the audio tour and signs to the exhibits.
The scale of the project is impressive: 20 organizations and 135 people worked on the audio guides. 170 hours of audio were recorded in 1.5 years.
English, Croatian, Russian, French, Latvian, Norwegian, Italian, Polish, Czech, Arabic, Turkish, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, Swedish, Lithuanian, Hebrew, Chinese (Putonghua), Swahili, Hindi, Armenian, Armenian, Greek, Kazakh, Persian, Vietnamese, Hungarian, Korean, Ukrainian, Azerbaijani, Crimean Tatar—in these languages you can listen to an audio tour.
