Open Source Language Summit in Pune

Wikimedia Foundation and Red Hat are organizing the open source language developers summit in Pune in November, 2013. This summit is focused on language tools and technology development to support 286 languages on Wikipedia, the Web, open source mobile operating systems and Linux.

This developers summit is participation by invitation only.

Core language developers, open source contributors, and technology evangelists will participate in sessions on internationalization and localization features supporting the web and Linux, font support, input method tools, language search, and web standards. Other key participants include Google, KDE, GNOME, translatewiki.net and other open source projects contributing to improving open source language support.

Developers who are active open source contributors from key projects as well as Indic language communities are welcome to participate. Translators with a linguistic background who can help improve language support for Wikimedia technology projects are also welcome to participate.

If you're an open source language software contributor and want to present your work or work with us on language engineering projects, please contact Alolita Sharma (asharma at wikimedia dot org).
