Dublin MultilingualWeb workshop report now available
A report summarizing the MultilingualWeb workshop in Dublin is now available from the MultilingualWeb site. Alongside the summaries are links to slides, video recordings, and the IRC log, for each speaker and for the discussion sessions.
Entitled “The Multilingual Web – Linked Open Data and MultilingualWeb-LT Requirements”, the workshop focused on two specific topics: the intersection between Linked Open Data and Multilingual Technologies, and requirements of the W3C MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group.
In both areas, the workshop was a great success. First, it helped to connect leading experts in the areas of linked open data, language technologies, terminology and localization. And second, detailed discussion about MultilingualWeb-LT requirements provided a major input to the creation of the first public working draft of Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0.
This workshop was unlike previous workshops because its focus was specific to two topics, and the audience was intentionally restricted to experts in those areas. The MultilingualWeb-LT project plans to hold additional workshops next year that will have the broad scope and similar format to previous workshops.
