Nigeria has over 300 languages with three main languages been Yoruba, Igbo and Hausa.

There has been many business alliances formed between people speaking these languages and also inter-marriages between Nigerians and other nationalities are becoming more common.

The increasing number of Nigerians living overseas have made it imperative to develop this software to preserve the culture.

It is anticipated that SORO will help to reduce communication barriers between Nigerians, other nationalities and enhance business and personal relationships.

The application also includes a lifestyle information library which is similar to an electronic document management system. This allows the storage and retrieval of any electronic files such as images, pictures, video recordings and any other files into SORO.

When using the LifeStyle Information Library all features of the Language system can also be used. Most importantly information (record) can be saved in up to four versions, for example four different pictures of an event can be saved to create a family record/information.
