I18n Activity Project RADAR

Useful links

Use this page to track projects that we are actively working on. This page is mostly focused on project work, rather than review work, tracking of email lists, and other adhoc discussions and advice, in a wide range of topic areas, that take up much of the working group's time. The MultilingualWeb work includes a number of Coordination Groups that are not part of the I18n Activity. Yellow backgrounds indicate priority work in progress.
