Conference Panel Discussion: This year the world saw the release of the first open-source mobile operating system based entirely on web technologies. This has created a wealth of localization potential minority languages within the mobile ecosystem. Enabling support for these languages on a mobile device has also had its challenges, such as delivering localized data without decreasing performance, developing localization shipping agreements with commercial partners and creating solutions that allow implementation of an open-source mobile operating system in any language. This panel will discuss the potential, the challenges and how an open mobile presence can benefit global users, communities and language service providers alike.
