Pictograms are more than just a modern solution to language barriers. They are a fascinating insight into the history and culture of mankind. For thousands of years, pictograms have been used around the world to convey information, tell stories and promote understanding between cultures.
The first pictograms can be found in aboriginal cave paintings and in the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt. They were used by indigenous peoples to record their way of life, hunting techniques and cultural histories. Today, pictograms have evolved and are used in road signs, public relations and everyday life.
PIKTUU – More than a means of communication
In a world that is constantly evolving and where people from different cultures and backgrounds come together, the ability to communicate is essential. The words we use form the basis for our interaction and mutual understanding. But what happens when language barriers hinder communication?
The universal language of pictograms
It is a fact that immigrants, refugees and people with different language skills have the same basic needs as everyone else. They want to understand and be understood, exchange information and participate in social life. However, language barriers often stand in the way. PIKTUU offers an answer here: with easy-to-understand pictograms that enable universal communication. Regardless of whether you are talking to someone who does not speak your own language or in situations where words are not enough.
More than words: PIKTUU as a speaking aid
But PIKTUU is more than just a communication aid. It is also a speech aid for people who, for various reasons, have difficulty expressing themselves verbally. Whether due to health restrictions or other obstacles – PIKTUU offers a bridge to communication.
