A12N-Collaboration
Mar 24, 2002

A12N-Collaboration is a new short-term working group for collaboration on certain technical aspects of use of African languages in ICT. Its purposes include:
1) facilitate communication among individuals working on codepages for scripts of African languages;
2) promote collaboration on other projects on technical aspects of use of extended Latin-based character sets and non-Western scripts on computers and the internet; and
3) contribute to laying the groundwork for a separate, broader-topic, and open-archive list(s) on African languages and ICT.

For more information see:

and/or contact me (address below).

Also FYI ...
Current plans are to close the "Hausa charsets & keyboards" message board http://www.quicktopic.com/8/H/JxKHyg9ccPUVB in favor of the above, "Unicode-Afrique" (for Francophones, at http://fr.groups.yahoo.com/group/Unicode-Afrique ), and Hausa-L (for language-specific topics) - a list that apparently will be making a transition of its own soon.

These efforts will hopefully generate useful information sources for creation of multilingual web content, software localization, font design, etc. in Africa.
