The rapid development of new digital tools and infrastructures in the last years, and their application to a variety of disciplines has transformed how we store, access and retrieve information. This has also shaped the ways knowledge is presented and reused in diverse cultural contexts. The exploreAT! project builds upon not only Austrian, but also European cultural identity from the aspect of language, in particular dialects. Unlike standard languages, dialects are in times of globalization under considerable threat of diminishing, and this ultimately poses a risk to the intangible record that is language and through which a history of tangible culture is expressed. In this paper we elaborate on the possibilities digital means and the infrastructure and services of the EGI-Engage project in revealing and giving access to unique traditional cultural knowledge contained in a non-standard language resource on the example of the Bavarian dialects in Austria (DBÖ). Digital tools and services allow our heterogeneous corpus of data to be virtually exploited and preserved. The flexibility of the internet allows these data to become not only visible, but searchable and extractable. Through digitization efforts, and the use of European infrastructures the hidden cultural narratives within the data can be uncovered, enriched and shared for the benefit of information and knowledge society.
