This session will focus on the feasibility and usefulness of developing new language and localization services for use on Wikimedia projects. Possible topics for discussion include:
- Expanding the machine translation and annotation mapping services currently available through cxserver and making them more widely available.
- Developing a secure, internal web service for the collection and distribution of localization resources (e.g., interface message strings) that can be used together with a in-memory cache like APC or memcache to provide easier and more agile localization updates.
- Script conversion (transliteration) services.
- Other language and/or localization services.
