TEI2German Translatathon

The workshop will be announced as an open call for the German speaking community to improve the TEI by providing concise and fitting translations of the descriptive texts of the TEI P5 guidelines’ specs. The goal of the workshop is to translate <desc> and <gloss> elements and feed these back into the TEI specifications. The setting will be hands-on and interactive. This event will be specifically targeted at the German speaking community which will most likely be a substantial part of the audience at Vienna, with iterations for other languages envisioned at subsequent TEI events. We aim to add and improve translations in areas that are identified as the first session of the translatathon, so that it might become possible to have coherent translations for an identified set of tags. This will be supported by supplemental material that groups the existing tags by module and/or area of interest, to make the progress visible. The outreach will be via the general relevant community lists, personal contacts and cooperations with local institutions.
