Internationalisation, Localisation and Customisation Aspects of the Dictionary Application TshwaneLex

Gilles-Maurice de Schryver

Abstract


Abstract: TshwaneLex is the world's only lexicography software suite with which the entire lexicographic process, from initial compilation all the way to final product, may be conducted in the language of one's choice. This is possible thanks to various aspects of internationalisation, localisation and customisation that are built into TshwaneLex. These are discussed by means of examples drawn from a wide variety of projects and languages.
