Videos from the Rome MultilingualWeb Workshop now available

Videos of speakers at the MultilingualWeb Workshop in Rome are now linked from the workshop report. They can also be accessed from the Videolectures site.

The two-day 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. Half of the second day was dedicated to an Open Space discussion with breakouts.

The workshop was sponsored by the EU-funded QTLaunchPad project and Verisign. “During the W3C Rome Workshop we were able to identify the gaps holding organizations back from achieving a truly multilingual Internet and discuss best practices that will further our collective goal of achieving a web void of cultural borders”, said Pat Kane, senior vice president of Naming and Directory Services at Verisign.
