Internationalization Review Radar

This page summarizes upcoming specifications that the Internationalization Working Group is aware of that need to be reviewed for internationalization-related considerations. Please refer to the instructions for how to raise and track issues.

The Internationalization community is invited to participate in this process. By contributing reviews and review comments, you can help ensure that W3C Specifications and documents from other standards bodies and groups that the Internationalization Working Group has reviewed are truly "global ready". Help us advance our mission of making the World Wide Web truly World-wide!


The Internationalization Working Group uses the Tracker tool to keep track of our comments on various specifications and other documents. Here are links:

See the list of open issues, sorted by product.

Before we used Tracker (and this page), we used a different format to keep track of reviews and our comments. For those historical comments, look here: Former Review History
