I am delighted to announce that I will be presenting two internationalization sessions at TechEd Europe 2006
in Barcelona (6th to 10th November 2006):-10 Things To Know Before Internationalizing An Application
The global market place is creating an ever increasing demand for internationalized Web and Windows applications. The basics of .NET internationalization are easily acquired in a short timeframe. However, the ’gotchas’ and best practices of internationalization demand specialised knowledge and experience. This session shows you the top 10 nuggets of .NET internationalization facts and tips for Web and Windows applications that you should know before you start your next internationalized application. Going Beyond Latin And Cyrllic With Right-To-Left (RTL) And Asian Languages
The essential technology and best practices for internationalizing Windows Forms and ASP.NET applications for Latin languages requires a basic knowledge of internationalization using the .NET Framework. However, Middle East and East Asian languages have requirements and internationalization issues which go beyond this knowledge. Middle Eastern languages such as Arabic, Hebrew and Persian are right-to-left (RTL) languages and these place additional design and development considerations on the development team. East Asian languages such as Chinese, Japanese and Korean require more consideration for fonts and demand the use of input method editors (IMEs). This session is designed to cover what developers need to know to write internationalized Windows Forms 2.0 and ASP.NET 2.0 applications for RTL and East Asian languages. A basic knowledge of internationalization using the .NET Framework is required.
