Field Workers among unengaged people groups need an application to help them document culture and language simultaneously. To work in these contexts, field workers need to document undocumented languages, and develop literacy programs to start translation projects.
Field Workers are highly trained and educated for the work they have raised funds to do, but software tools for this work are in short supply. The tools that do exist were originally designed for Windows XP. Field workers should have an application that works for them, on whatever platform they use... because Learning language is hard enough, learning several different platforms and applications shouldn't be necessary.
Glossa is built with web-technologies, but works offline across platforms. Documentation and help for using the app itself, or for analyzing a particularly vexing verb affix... it is all baked into Glossa. Searching the helps inside the app is a breeze, and is sure to help those field workers with limited access to the resources the internet provides.
