This article discusses language planning developed by the Spanish in the kingdom of Nueva Granada, now Colombia. They found an area with very special characteristics. First, Nueva Granada was a mixture of pre-Columbian civilizations. Second, that territory did not have a dominant language before the Spanish. Third, the colonizers faced very different sociolinguistic objectives: the communication with the metropolis, the translation of indigenous languages, the evangelization of the new citizens. The result was a diglossia, finally, many indigenous languages retained. Curiously, the Spanish Crown was more tolerant of linguistic diversity in America than in Europe.
