Group: CWA working group 2.10: multilinguality


<meta> <title></title> <meta> </meta> </meta>

As an alliance, the CWA favours support for multiple languages. Support for multiple languages means that it needs to be possible for both the software and the data to be displayed in multiple languages.

Not everybody has English as its first language and many important medical corpora are in other languages. The CWA supports multi language support because:

  • it increases the application of the available data

  • it allows us to involve patient organisations and other communities

  • new translations improve the quality of data mining in one language and data presentation at the same time

  • languages like Russian, Mandarin, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese are obvious targets but not exclusively so

The relevance of the CWA itself will be enhanced because of our multi language support. The data that we have available will be used for the data mining needed for bio-banking as well as the presentation of data in software.
