]init[ develops ITS tool for Libre Office
The MultilingualWeb Language Technology Project (MLW-LT) is concerned with standards and best practices that support the creation, localization and use of multilingual web-based information. In order to become a valid W3C recommendation, an emerging standard and its features need to be implemented in several “proof of concepts”.
Within the EU funded MLW-LT project, ]init[ is subcontractor to the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and in charge of providing one such pilot implementation for the W3C draft recommendation called “Internationalization Tag Set 2.0” (ITS 2.0).
The tool is titled “ITS for Libre Office” and is meant to ease up the communication between content providers and language service providers (e.g. translation agencies).
