Gregory M. Shreve's Software Localization presentation and related files now available

 
Gregory Shreve is Chair of Modern and Classical Language Studies at Kent State University and Director of the Institute for Applied Linguistics, the foremost university-based translator training program in the U.S.

Shreve addressed issues facing organizations that must globalize their electronic documents and internationalize their engineering processes.  In this context he also described the language industry that has emerged to provide these services.

This Distinguished Seminar Series presentation was at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, December 9, and was open to the public.  There was a question-and-answer period after the presentation, followed by a reception.

The electronic slides and an mp3 recording of this presentation are now available on the OCLC Research Web site.

An additional presentation is also available on the DSS page. In response to requests from the audience, Dr. Shreve has provided a copy of his ASIS&T-2004 presentation, on Internationalizing Digital Libraries.
