    Dear List,

    Thanks for the answers about font designers. They
    were all very interesting.

    At the U.N. and in some countries, they have 'official
    languages.' The U.N. has 5, I think. Singapore has 4,
    several African countries have 2-3, and so forth.

    Does either the ISO or the IEC have official
    languages? Whether official or not, is French the
    'second language' of the standards world?

    And also, is there a bilingual or trilingual standards

    A glossary is a small-ish dictionary, frequently
    focused on a narrow topic.

    I'm about to translate something into technical
    French.....I still didn't purchase a technical French
    dictionary because the ones I've seen didn't have
    enough computer terminology.

    Thanks Elaine
