DrupalCon Denver: Bof on Drupal to be first CMS to implement new W3C i18n standard

mlw-logo-lt.pngWe (Carsten and Carina) have been sent out to tell the Drupal community about our latest project which has potentially huge implications not only for Cocomore, but for Drupal as well.

We are part of a consortium funded by the European Union which tries to close gaps in the technical localization chain by better integrating localization service providers and translation technologies with CMS. The project called "MultilingualWeb - Language Technologies" (MultilingualWeb-LT) aims to combine several existing technologies and standards. Furthermore, a new standard for metadata will be developed in order to optimize the translation process. To facilitate the adoption of this standard, a W3C Working Group was also formed. Drupal will be the first CMS to work holistically with this new standard.

In our BoF session at DrupalCon in Denver on Tuesday, March 20 (1-2 p.m.) we will introduce the project in more detail. Participants are invited to voice requirements for this project from the Drupal point of view. Please come and see us in room 502.

Thanks a lot for this

Thanks a lot for this information about MultilingualWeb! This project is pretty enjoyable, I should say. It's a pity I wasn't able to be present at its presentation.

That's what I thought too,

That's what I thought too, after I read the article here. I regret for not attending the meeting myself. Next time I won't be such careless and check for the upcoming meetings more thoroughly.
