> Subject: Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Unicode
> MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 07/02/07 -- The UnicodeR
> Consortium announces a new project to make the United Nation's
> Universal Declaration of Human Rights available on the web, in as many
> languages as possible, using the power of Unicode.
> Unicode is ideally suited for this project because it is the universal
> character set, able to represent all languages of the world.
> The initial collection for the UDHR in Unicode project now contains
> more than 300 languages from Abkhaz to Zulu. For each language, the
> text of the UDHR is made available in the following Unicode-based
> formats: XML, plain text, HTML, and PDF. There are also links to
> resources for the languages, such as dictionaries and grammars.
> The Consortium is calling for participation to help complete this work,
> particularly by language experts, to improve and refine the data.
> Information on how you can participate can be found on the project's
> website at http://www.unicode.org/udhr/.
> The UDHR in Unicode project makes the Declaration more accessible
> world-wide by providing a uniform, easily searchable, standards-based
> set of translations. The Unicode community will also benefit by having
> access to a multi-lingual corpus, which can be used to test Unicode
> implementations, in particular for less widely used languages. For more
> information on the Unicode Standard, please visit
> About the Unicode Consortium
> The Unicode Consortium is a non-profit organization founded to develop,
> extend and promote use of the Unicode Standard and related
> globalization standards. The membership of the consortium represents a
