Bainvegni tar la Lia Rumantscha
Lia Rumantscha has been the umbrella organisation for all Romansh-speaking individuals and organisations since 1919. It is a charitable institution that is neutral on matters of politics and religious belief. Its mandate under public law is that it should use funding from the state and from the canton to support the Romansh language and culture.
From its headquarters in Chur, Lia Rumantscha supports, promotes and coordinates the work of regional associations, inter-regional bodies and Romansh organisations outside Graubünden. Delegates from these affiliated associations vote once a year at the Delegates' Meeting on the program of work and the budget for Lia Rumantscha.

The Pledari Grond is an online platform that combines dictionaries of the idioms and Rumantsch Grischun under one roof. The dictionaries Rumantsch Grischun, Surmiran and Sutsilvan can be continuously supplemented by the editors of the Pledari Grond with suggestions made by the users. We want to realize this possibility of expanding the vocabulary soon for the other idioms as well.
kidsfits, the new family program from Lia Rumantscha, provides content for families, nursery schools, playgroups and kindergartens.
Translations and proofreading
We translate and proofread texts of all kinds into Rumantsch Grischun and the idioms. Translations are mainly from German, occasionally also from Italian, French and English.
