Standards for Multilingual Web Sites

Standards for Multilingual Web Sites

This video was recorded at W3C Workshop: Content on the Multilingual Web, Pisa 2011. Additional standards are required to facilitate the use and construction of multilingual web sites. The user interface standards should be a best practices guide combining existing mechanisms such as transparent content negotiation (TCN) and new techniques such as a language button in the browser. Servers should expect the same API to the content, though eventually one should address the whole cycle of Authorship, Translation and Publishing Chain (ATP-chain).
