Talk slides: Practical Tips for Designing International Web Pages

Richard Ishida gave a presentation entitled Practical Tips for Designing International Web Pages on 9 June, 2009, at Localization World, Berlin, Germany.

The slides are annotated and in PDF. The presentation looked at a selection of practical issues for people who develop web pages for a multilingual audience. Topics included the dangers of composing sentences in content using scripting, strategies for designing layout so that text expansion during translation will not destroy your efforts, strategies for navigating localized content, and the separation of content and presentation. It explored some of the potential difficulties that can be encountered in these areas and recommended some best practices to help you avoid them.
