Abstract

To collect and share language resources like machine translators and dictionaries, we developed the Language Grid in 2006, a service-oriented language infrastructure on the Internet. Although we have put a lot of effort into improving the service grid technologies and collecting language services, international NPO/NGOs are struggling with the design and development of tools and systems for supporting multi-language communication in the real world by utilizing available language services. This paper proposes a framework for service design with the Language Grid by bridging the gap between language service infrastructures and multi-language systems. The proposed framework is implemented as a toolkit, Multilingual Studio, which is open to allow the users to design and develop multilingual communication services and tools in the real world.
