[lg policy] Fw: Changes to CLDR Survey Tool

Sat Apr 14 13:46:12 UTC 2012

For those not familiar with computer support for diverse languages, one of the key elements is locale data. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Locale or the site linked in the email below for more information. 

The Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR) is the where standard locales are maintained (and it in turn is hosted by the Unicode Consortium). 

Completing and updating locales for various languages can be tedious, so tools have been developed. Such tools make it easier for language specialists or activists to contribute locale information - which is especially important for smaller language communities. The following email concerns updates to the CLDR Survey Tool. 

I'm forwarding this with the thought that the multilingual potential of information and communications technology has significant implications for the use of diverse languages, and for language policies and planning.
