Abstract

To increase the accessibility and usability of online language services, this paper proposes the language grid to create composite language services for various communities. The language grid is called "horizontal," when the grid connects the standard languages of nations, or "vertical," when the grid combines the language services generated by communities. Semantic Web service technologies are applied in a human-centered fashion, to create composite language services through the collaboration of users and agents. Three example scenarios are given to illustrate how the language grid will organize standard and community language services for intercultural collaboration activities.
