  • How do you build a multilingual website? What are the things you should be thinking about? In my last post in this series, I wrote about our need for a multilingual editor (and we now have some GREAT candidates!). But there's obviously much more to a site than just having a person on board. This week, Joly MacFie of our New York Chapter pointed me to this excellent video from the recent WordCamp Helsinki 2017 event titled "The User Experience Perspective of Multilingual and Multi-regional Websites":What I like about this is how the speaker, Thomas Hurd, lays out the different options in how...

Last year we spoke with many people throughout the larger Internet Society community. We spoke with staff, with Chapter leaders, with partner organizations, with individual members and many more.  As we launch the "beta" of the new website this week, I want to share with you the vision that emerged out of all of those aspirations:Our website is a driving force in realizing our mission of an open Internet for everyone. It empowers all who...

Have you found it difficult to know what actions you can take on important issues such as connecting the unconnected and building trust on the Internet?You are not alone.In one of the most visible and important changes we are making this year, we are working hard on giving our website a deep refresh.  We are building it to be a direct vehicle for action.
