I couldn't agree more. We made a bid to the EU for funding to do precisely
that, but although short-listed it seems to have fallen on stony ground. We are
reliant therefore on the willingness of other European organizations or
institutions to fund such activities, and we hope that lots of others will
follow Tuebingen's example. In fairness though, I should point out that this is
not the first non-anglophone TEI presentation -- I gave one in (more or less)
French this past summer at the AIS Summer School, and I am sure there have been
many others I don't know about.
As regards translations of TEI publications, may I take this opportunity to
urge more interested parties to follow the example of the French Ministry of
Education, which has recently commissioned a French translation of the TEI Lite
Tutorial (TEIU5)? I also know that a Spanish translation of P2, and an Italian
version of P2, have both been produced (at the Universities of Barcelona and
Pisa respectively) but I don't know how widely available they are.
We'd love to see a Polyglot's Corner on the TEI Web Page! If you're interested,
let us know.
