> We are pleased to announce that our speaker this month, Wednesday,
> November 11, 2004 (that is this coming Wednesday!), will be Dafydd
> contributer to Debian GNU/Linux and Gnome and localizer (translator) for
> Welsh. He will be speaking on a topic that a number of you have
> interest in "Languages in Free Software." (That's human languages.) If
> you or somone you close to you (this IS New York City) will need or want
> to use another language at some point, this is the talk for you, but it
> should be interesting regardless.
> Title: Languages in Free Software
> Given the huge diversity of languages spoken by people all over the
> world, developing software that can deal with them all is a big
> challenge. Inputting, processing and displaying multilingual text each
> present their own difficulties. Additionally, making user interfaces
> that can be used in multiple languages is no small task. However, free
> software is rising to the challenge of truly global software. This talk
> will give a taste of how it's doing that.
> Dafydd Harries is a free software advocate from Wales. His introduction
> to the challenges of multilingual software began when he saw translating
> GNOME into Welsh as an opportunity to contribute to free software. Since
> then he's translated numerous free software programs, worked to make
> others translateble and gained experience in many areas related to
> making software usable by people all over the world.
> We are grateful to IBM for providing the space for these meetings.
> Please see below for the security procedures required for attending
