MultilingualWeb Madrid slides, video recordings, and IRC notes now available
Slides, video recordings of speakers and IRC notes for the MultilingualWeb workshop in Madrid are now available from the MultilingualWeb site. There are also pointers to blog posts, tweets and photos related to the workshop.
Entitled “The Multilingual Web: Where are We?”, the workshop surveyed and shared information about currently available best practices and standards that can help content creators and localizers address the needs of the multilingual Web, including the Semantic Web. Attendees also heard about gaps that need to be addressed, and enjoyed opportunities to network and share information between the various different communities involved in enabling the multilingual Web. Just over a hundred people attended.
Work is under way on a summary report for the workshop, which will be announced in due course.
Building on the success of the Madrid workshop, preparations have now begun for the next workshop, to be held in Pisa, Italy, in March 2011. A Call for Participation will be issued soon.
