Making the Multilingual Web Work - 12,13 March - Rome

Today, the World Wide Web is fundamental to communication in all walks of life. Although English once dominated the Web, other languages are increasing their presence, with long-term economic and social impacts. If the Web is to deliver its promised benefits and live up to the ideal of a single, world-wide network, it is vitally important to ensure the multilingual success of the World Wide Web.

The MultilingualWeb community develops and promotes best practices and standards related to all aspects of creating, localizing, and deploying the Web across boundaries of language. It aims to raise the visibility of existing best practices and standards for dealing with language on the Internet and on identifying and resolving gaps that keep the Internet from living up to its global potential.

The core vehicle for these actions is a series of events that started in 2010 (run by the initial MultilingualWeb Project and its successor, the MultilingualWeb-LT project). Following five highly successful events in Madrid, Pisa, Limerick, Luxembourg, and Dublin, the sixth workshop will be held in Rome and hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
