ChuvashTet (short for "Chuvash Internet"), (Chuvash: Чăва́ш Интерне́чĕ, Чăваште́т, Чăваш Тете́лĕ) is the name Chuvash-speaking Internet users commonly use for the segment of the Web about the Chuvash people or Chuvashia. It includes webpages and websites in many languages.

Chuvash Internet resources can be located in any domain (or do not have a domain), and corresponding servers are physically located anywhere in the world. Chuvash Internet usually refers not only to the World Wide Web sites, but the Internet and other services that are used for communication in the Chuvash language (messengers, IRC, email), storage and multimedia products on the Chuvash language (file-sharing networks, Internet radio, Internet television).

Chuvash Internet users employ Latin and Cyrillic scripts.

  • March 12, 2009 - at a meeting of the Interagency Commission for Chuvash language for the discussion of reports of NA Plotnikov, V. Yu Andreev and IV Alekseeva, it was recommended in the e-Chuvash written in the Cyrillic alphabet use Unicode characters for code: ă (U +0103), Ă (U +0102), ĕ (U +0115), Ĕ (U +0114), ç (U +00 E7), Ç (U +00 E7), ÿ (U +00 FF), Ϋ (U + 0178) [10], i.e. Latin letters Ă ă, Ĕ ĕ, Ç ç, Ÿ ÿ.


The development of the Chuvash Internet is limited by several factors:

  • Reducing the number of speakers of Chuvash language
  • Replacement of the Chuvash language of everyday communication
  • Weak promotion of the Chuvash language in the new communications environment.

The decline in the social-economic area that occurred in the republic after the collapse of the Soviet Union's disastrous impact on the spiritual level of the population. Support for Chuvash language, literature, theater, part of the state was minimal, but help comes only in the form of grants.


The main object of criticism of the Official Portal of the Chuvash Republic «» is a violation of the provisions of paragraph 2 of Article 19, paragraph 2 of Article 26, paragraphs 2 and 3 of Article 68 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation,[8] Article 8 of the Constitution of the Chuvash Republic,[9] the Law Chuvash Republic "On languages in the Chuvash Republic".[10]

The point of criticism is reduced to limit the rights of citizens of the Republic of Chuvashia on access to information about government activities in the Chuvash Republic Chuvash language, as the main language websites of state and municipal authorities, the Russian language. In particular, in accordance with Article 9 of the Law of the Chuvash Republic "On languages in the Chuvash Republic," the laws of the Chuvash Republic have officially published in the Chuvash and Russian, but the government sites are presented only Russian-language texts of the laws.[11]

One reason for the lack of Chuvash-speaking texts is the imperfection of the software (content management system) portal site of the official authorities of the Chuvash Republic and the blast zone «» - lack of support for Unicode. For this reason: on web pages do not display Cyrillic Ӑ ӑ, Ӗ ӗ, Ҫ ҫ, Ӳ ӳ; in the guest book does not display Cyrillic Ӑ ӑ, Ӗ ӗ, Ҫ ҫ, Ӳ ӳ and externally similar to writing letters of Latin Ă ă, Ĕ ĕ, Ç ç, Ÿ ÿ.

In an information system "Portal of the executive power" of the Chuvash Republic is not a choice she laid the user interface language site.
