The second workshop of the PanAfrican Localisation project, "PAL2" is being held in Tshwane, South Africa, on 5-7 November 2007.
This is a special section of the PanAfriL10n.org wiki for the PAL2 workshop. It uses the name of the municipal area in which PAL2 will take place: Tshwane.
PAL2 is the third workshop on localisation in Africa that is funded by IDRC, following the first PanAfrican Localisation workshop in Casablanca, Morocco (2005/6/13-15) and the Pan African Research on L10N Workshop & Localization Blitz in Marrakech, Morocco (2007/2/24-27).
The workshop builds on the previous meetings, as well as others and ongoing developments in the localisation community. It has the following goals:
- Generate recommendations on the sustainability of the PanAfrican Localisation (PAL) project – notably the website and wiki, which are intended as ongoing and “living” resources.
- Discuss future directions, initiatives, and specific projects relating to IDRC's localisation program in Africa.
- As another in a series of meetings on localization in Africa, it will facilitate individual contacts within the emerging network, including experts from countries that have not previously participated.
