Worldwide Lexicon Unveiled at Ignite

Brian McConnell, one of our Ignite 3 speakers, wrote in to tell us that the subject of his talk is ready to be used! From Brian:

The Worldwide Lexicon, an open source translation project, made its first appearance at Ignite. WWL enables websites to translate their content to any language, by recruiting bilingual users from their audience to contribute translations via a wiki. WWL is inviting more websites to join its test. Visit www.worldwidelexicon.org for more information.

Joining the network is as simple as posting your site’s full text RSS feed address. WWL polls your RSS feed for new texts, and then creates wiki pages for translations to any number of languages. You can either let WWL host the translations, or if you want to be fancy about it, loop RSS back from the WWL system to your site.
