Language Engineering Needs questionnaire

I hope this will be of interest to people working with (or intending to
work with) Unicode, electronic foreign language data or corpora...

The Department of Linguistics at Lancaster is currently engaged in work
aimed at establishing the needs of the language engineering community
and linguists with regard to corpus building in non-indigenous minority
languages in Europe (e.g. Chinese, Vietnamese, Bengali, Gujarati,
Panjabi, Urdu, Hindi, Sinhala, Sylheti etc). We have developed a short
web-questionnaire to assess such needs. The answers will be anonymised
and eventually form part of a report on the needs of the language
engineering community in Europe which we are happy to send to all who
participate in the survey free of charge. (One of the questions
specifically mentions Unicode.)

Even if you are not working with these languages, we'd like to imagine
that you are going to be in the future, and fill in the questionnaire
with this in mind. The questionnaire is at:
