Open Source Localisation Conference

Karl Kelly writes "LRC '04 Open Source Localisation

The Localisation Research Centre's annual localisation conference will take place this September at the University of Limerick in Ireland. The theme of this year's conference is "Open Source Localisation", a topic that has been on the lips of many in the localisation industry over the past few years, and a topic that we feel will play a huge role in the future of our industry.

This year's event will take place over two days, 21-22 September 2004, and will feature a keynote by Paul Gampe, the Director of Engineering for RedHat Asia Pacific. This keynote will examine current developments in international digital content development, especially in relation to open source. How has the open source movement been able to achieve such a depth and breadth of language coverage in such a short period of time? What do the large multinational digital content providers have to learn from the success, and how can the open source movement leverage the existing developments of the proprietary localisation industry to take it to the next step?

The conference will also host an industry exhibition, workshops and plenary sessions with speakers from Ireland and abroad.
