Hello, UA Colleagues:

You might be interested in reading or watching this presentation on 
internationalization activities at the W3C, given by Richard Ishida to 
their recent AC 2020 conference: <https://www.w3.org/2020/05/AC/talk/i18n>.

The W3C's Internationalization (i18n) Working Group has similarities to 
our work in the UASG, in that there is a very broad ocean of problems to 
address, and very few people to do it, and a need to communicate and 
intervene wisely.  As I read Richard's presentation, I kept having three 

 1. What can we in the UASG learn about methods and tools from what the
    W3C i18n group is doing well?
 2. Are we sure that the we have communicated to the W3C i18n group all
    of what we believe and recommend, so that the W3C i18n group can, if
    they agree with us, communicate our recommendations as part of their
 3. Are we in the UASG hearing the lessons learned by the W3C i18n group
    from their work?

Those are deep questions, and I don't expect rapid answers. However, I 
think many on this list might find it interesting to read and or watch 
Richard's presentation, and consider those questions.

Best regards,
