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.

program of the June LocalizationWorld Conference, please see
