This panel session will envision the future of internationalization (I18n) of the Apereo Projects, in the context of the work accomplished over the last decade as Jasig and Sakai. To date, I18n activities have not been well coordinated across the Jasig and Sakai projects, and as a result it is harder for each project to leverage the best practices developed by the others.
The merger of the Jasig and Sakai communities provides an opportunity to consolidate I18n resources and best practices into a common community of practice for cost-effective activities that promote the international adoption of Apereo software. This panel will invite representatives from various Jasig and Sakai projects to discuss the current state of I18n, and what needs to be done to construct a common I18n foundation for the Apereo Community.
