|Created by||Risto Kupsala|
|Setting and usage||International auxiliary language|
The creator first started to plan the project in 2005. Right from the start, the idea was to create an international language that represented equally the most spoken languages in the world. The name Pandunia appeared in 2007, but the language didn't receive its current shape until 2017. Since the end of 2016, it is constantly revised through Telegram by a small community made up of mainly Esperantists. On March 2017, the language became entirely analytic.  The syntactic role of the words within the sentence is decided by its position.
Ph.D. Kauko Kämäräinen describes Pandunia "radically different compared to other auxiliary languages" and "revolutionary in its originality". .
The main goals of Pandunia are:
- Having vocabulary that represents several languages, such as English, Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, French, Hindi, Japanese, Persian, Russian, Swahili and other languages.
- Relatively simple phonology.
- Easy to write.
- Easy to learn and a concise grammar.

The words are derived from several languages from the world. Due to the international state of the language, several roots belong to different language even if the Pandunia form is more similar to that of a particular language.
