Welcome to the Pan African Research on L10N Workshop & Localization Blitz

This wiki is a working space of the Pan African Localisation Research and Implementation Network and a work plan for the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) support for l10n efforts in Africa in 2007.

It was created for the participants of the Pan African Research on L10N Workshop & Localization "Blitz, 24-27 of February 2007, Marrakesh, Morocco.

This gathering brought together leading researchers and practitioners from across Africa to develop a joint research agenda.

The main outcome of that meeting is to start a process of reinforcing a network of partners to conduct applied research on l10n issues in Africa.

The main objectives of the workshop were:

  1. build a network of partners to conduct applied research on l10n issues in Africa;
  2. design a research agenda for l10n in Africa that may include policy analysis and advice, standardization efforts, technical and practical concerns, etc.;
  3. draft a proposal to IDRC for support of the network and research agenda;
  4. run a localization “blitz” to create a practical output useful for the PanAfrican Research on L10N Network and its local partners.

Going forward after the workshop

  1. A working group has been formed to figure out how to realize the objectives of the network. See EstablishmentOfAWorkingGroup for the composition and mandate of the working group.
  2. Expanding the network
