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 I18N 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 I18N WG reviews are truly "global ready" and help advance our mission of making the World Wide Web truly World-wide.
