It seems three out of five web pages this morning have been in other languages. I'm not complaining mind you, just noticing my extreme lack of i18n* skills.

If I'm going to keep up with the web, life on this planet, and any kind of international ministry I'm going to have to learn at least one more.

My "to learn" languages list is exceeding long. The ones that I've found are most often used in my industry are (in order of most regular occurances): English (got that one), French, German, and Japanese.

Someday soon my friends.

a, ka, sa, ta, na...

* i18n stands for internationalization. It's my favorite child of the accronym boom of the late 90's. It has a younger sibling that's nice too: L10N - localization.
