As a member of the I18N IG, you can help by reviewing early versions of W3C specifications for internationalization issues.

Send your comments to the interest group list, and the Internationalization Core Working Group will consider them and forward them to the relevant working group. This work is central to ensuring that new technologies developed at W3C meet the needs of global users.

See the Review Radar for a current schedule of documents in the Last Call review stage.

We also welcome contributions to discussions on the wide range of issues posted on the main IG mailing list, and its sub-lists dedicated to CJK, Indic and Bidi issues.
