Microsoft launches Language Portal

Microsoft’s newly launched Language Portal contains information for language professionals such as an IT terminology search tool and a localization download site.

Thanks go to Britta Simon, who talked a bit about this at Localization World Seattle 2007 and has told us about the official launch.



The Language Portal “is designed to enable individuals and communities around the world to interact with each other and with Microsoft’s language specialists on matters related to computer terminology” according to their site. Even if you are not involved in Windows translation and terminology, the site is an interesting place to visit to see what Microsoft is doing to improve the localization of products that run on their platform. The site is available in eleven languages with live feedback in more and includes a terminology community forum
