UNESCO and SIL Initiate Joint Effort for Multilingualism in Cyberspace

Representatives from UNESCO and SIL initiate plans for a joint project to promote multilingualism on the Internet during meetings held 20-22 January.

Technology for redendering complex scripts such as SIL's Graphite are a key factor in making computing techologies accessible to people from all language communities.

"It's really great to see the enthusiasm of the SIL team here. With partners like you we can go a long way toward achieving these goals."

-Paul G. C. Hector, UNESCO Information Society Division member.
