The Worldwide Lexicon

I’m back in the Bay Area and I was talking with Brian McConnell of the Worldwide Lexicon (WWL) project in San Francisco today. For fans and researchers of the promise offered by social translation, the WWL is a must to check out.

The Worldwide Lexicon is an open-source project that combines technology and human translation expertise to allow users to translate any web page from any language to another language, and to share those translations within the web community.

I’ll be looking at the issue of social translation in more detail in a forthcoming issue of Multilingual, but for now, go to: for more information.
