Global Survey on Multilingualism in ICANN's Work Now Online

20 May 2008

ICANN today enabled an online survey, available in 11 languages
including English, to facilitate understanding of the way in which the
community uses existing materials prepared in multiple languages. It
will also help ICANN understand how it could enhance multilingual access
to the work of the organisation.

This survey is also a key input into the public consultation process for
the ICANN draft Translation Programme. The mission of the programme is
to provide those who are not fluent English speakers with an equal level
of access to influence and participate in the work of ICANN as those who
are fluent in English.

You may find more information about the Translation Programme at:

The online survey is accessible at the following URL:

The results of the survey are available in real-time at the following
URL: https://www.bigpulse.com/pollresults?code=W27JWywPJkfgK5pmusGA

Note that the results available at the URL above only present the
non-narrative answers of the survey. It is not presently possible to
show summarized statistical results and at the same time include
individual narrative responses in a way that is meaningful. The text
answers will be compiled into the report prepared at the completion of
the survey.

The survey will remain open until 20 June 2008.
