Lingo24’s CTO Andrzej Zydron recently returned from a week in Bucharest, Romania, where he was contributing to the EU-funded Multilingual Web project.
Organised by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the Multilingual Web project is a two year collaboration between 22 institutes and companies in the vanguard of the web’s internationalisation.
The aim of the project is to improve the accessibility of the internet for people of all languages by developing technology and establishing multilingual standards.
As the man behind Lingo24’s innovative new browser-based collaborative translation technology (XTM), Zydron is ideally placed to bring a Lingo24 edge to the project.
‘Participating in these initiatives gives Lingo24 direct access to the latest developments and trends,’ Zydron said, ‘as well as allowing us to shape the way that internet technology develops.’
With the traditionally English-centric web becoming increasingly multilingual, projects such as this will play a pivotal role in guiding the future of the internet for everyone in cyberspace, no matter what their language.
