The work conducing to version 3 (and version 1) of the described model has been realized thanks to the funding of¬†Organisation de la Francophonie¬†and with the valuable assistance of¬†√Ālvaro Blanco¬†(without his special ability in writing support programs on demand, this study could not have been concluded) who is to be credited for the new approach for the traffic indicator. The foundation of the method is partially based on ideas exposed by¬†Daniel Prado¬†in 2012, particularly the idea, applied to the Web, of using country statistics crossed with demo-linguistic figures to create language figures. Thanks to¬†Gilvan M√ľller de Oliveira, from the¬†UNESCO Chair on Language Policies for Multilingualism, for his support and the coordination of the¬†Brazilian government¬†and the¬†International Portuguese Language Institute¬†contribution which allowed for version 2 of the model, an indispensable step towards version 3.
