bab.laはAndreas Schroeter, Patrick Ueckerにより創立された言語プロジェクトです。このアイディアはAndreasがずっと抱えていたものです。彼は高校や大学生活を通じて、カナダ、フランス、スウェーデン、アメリカなどでの生活を経験しました。その経験から単純な直接の翻訳では意思疎通がうまくいかない事を痛感し、正しい単語を使い、生きた言語を使わなければ駄目だということを実感しました。長い間Andreasは様々な外国語の辞書を集めていて、こういった言語ポータルのサイトを始めることは自然のステップでした:言語好きの人たちが一緒になって提案しあい、学んでゆく。言語を自然に学ぶには学習を共にできるネイティブスピーカーが一番のいい先生だとおもいませんか?PatrickはPascal、C++、Java、Prolog、LISP、SQL、PHP、JSP、ASP言語専門家で、その知識をもってこのサイトが運営されています:-)
