Gmail now in Cherokee

Vance Blackfox and Craig Cornelius carpooled to San Francisco from an event they'd both attended. Blackfox, director of youth in mission at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, is a member of the Cherokee Nation. Cornelius, a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Palo Alto, Calif., is a senior software engineer at Google. That rideshare resulted in a collaboration of Gmail in the Cherokee language, Google's 57th language. Blackfox connected Cornelius with the language technology department at the Cherokee Nation, and the Gmail team worked closely with volunteers ranging from university students to Durbin Feeling, author of the Cherokee-English Dictionary.
