Description of the
UNL (Universal Networking Language)
is a language tha -with its companion "enconverter"
and "deconverter" software- enables communication
among peoples of differing native languages. It will reside,
as a plug-in for popular World Wide Web browsers, on the Internet,
and will be compatible with standard network servers. The
technology will be shared among the member states of the United
Nations. Any person with access to the Internet will be able
to "enconvert" text from any native language of
a member state into UNL. Just as easily, any UNL text can
be "deconverted" from UNL into native languages.
United Nations University's UNL Center
will work with its partners to create and promote the UNL
software, which will be compatible with popular network servers
and computing platforms.
