We are pleased to announce that Localization World is organizing a one-day Unicode workshop on Unicode, including an introduction with Richard Ishida and three additional sessions. This will take place on the preconference day, June 4, 2012, in Paris. Richard is an experienced presenter at Unicode conferences, and is well known for his clear and effective presentations.
The Unicode Consortium’s goal is to enable people around the world to use computers in any language. The Consortium is involved in core internationalization specifications at the heart of all modern software, such as the Unicode Standard for character encoding. The Consortium’s involvement in localization is a key extension of this work. The Unicode Consortium maintains and extends the Common Data Locale Repository (CLDR), and in 2011 established the Unicode Localization Interoperability Technical Committee to improve the interoperability of localization data interchange.
