Announcing a sponsor program for the MultilingualWeb workshops

The W3C has put in place a dedicated sponsorship program for workshops to enable organizations to showcase their business and underscore their commitment to the shared goals of the W3C. The sponsorship benefits detailed below allow workshop sponsors to reach out to all stakeholders and decision makers worldwide and to be associated with breakthrough innovations that are paving the future of the Web.

This program is now available for the MultilingualWeb series of workshops. The MultilingualWeb project is exploring standards and best practices that support the creation, localization and use of multilingual web-based information. Through a series of workshops open to the public and various communication channels, the workshops will spread information about what standards and best practices currently exist, and what gaps need to be filled.

Get information about how to participate in the sponsor program.
