The MultilingualWeb project is exploring standards and best practices that support the creation, localization and use of multilingual web-based information. It is coordinated by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and funded by the European Commission.

The fourth (and the last) workshop took place in Luxembourg from March 15 to 16.

We had over 130 attendees from Apple, Intel, Microsoft, Mozilla, Opera, SAP, Wikipedia and many other important players in the field. The schedule was pretty tight for such a short event, but the format of 15-minute talks was really helpful.

Here are the slides from my talk on Pontoon:

Meeting with leading industry experts was useful at least for two reasons:

  • To learn how they solve problems we at Mozilla are also dealing with.
  • The amount of feedback on Pontoon (positive and negative) was really extensive.
