Multilingual Application Interface for Telematic Services
MAITS is a consortium formed to specify an Applications
Programming Interface (API) for multilingual applications in the
telematic services. A number of telematic applications, such
as X.500, WWW, X.400, internet mail and data bases, is planned to
be enhanced to use this i18n API and products are planned to
be implemented using the API. MAITS has been approved for funding
under the CEC 4th framework programme.
A summary in
and a fact sheet
describing MAITS are available. Machine translated summaries in the
are available too, for a demonstration of current MT technology.
MAITS is oriented towards using standards and producing standards
and maintains an overview of
contemporary i18n work.
MAITS has a public
list for news and discussions about
the MAITS project.
For MAITS consortium use and approved users of the consortium
there is access to
MAITS working documents.
