At the Wikimedia Foundation, the Localisation team takes care of language support on a daily basis. It takes care of large features, bug reports that are about language support and site requests about language support. It maintains the extentions WebFonts, Narayam, Translate and Babel, that are all used in some or many Wikimedia wikis. Next to this, some of the team's developers also facilitate the thousands of translators at translatewiki.net on a daily basis. During this session, most of the Localisation team's developers, as well as some volunteer developers and language related facilitators willbe available for questions and discussion.
