Metadata for the Multilingual Web

Felix Sasaki


We describe the Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0, an upcoming standard to foster the development of the multilingual Web. ITS 2.0 provides metadata to integrate workflows for content production, localization and language technology. The technical goal is to achieve better results in content creation and other language related processes; the goal in terms of community building is to raise awareness of needs in multilingual workflows. This aim is also supported by providing re-usable software components for various use cases.
