Results of the Survey Initiated at the Partner Meeting in June 2010
Participants were asked whether they agree or disagree that the following activities should be undertaken by the Translation and Language Committee. Many partners completed the survey at the partner meeting and others sent their responses via e-mail. A selection of comments provided on the forms is included below.
- Quality assurance and control: Participants overwhelmingly agreed that this is within scope.
- "Quality should be the priority."
- "Focus on translation of national terminologies and controlled vocabularies."
- Evaluation of new tools and techniques available for use on the WDL: Participants overwhelmingly agreed that this is within scope.
- "A few members of the group should be experts in machine translation as the goal for the group should be to automate as much as possible."
- "Do members have the expertise to do this?"
- Policies on adding languages: All participants agreed that this is within scope, but a few raised concerns that adding languages might interfere with adding content.
- "Some languages could be added, but adding too many could cause an unmanageable burden."
- Policies on serving lesser-known languages: Participants overwhelmingly agreed that this is within scope.
