        Subject: Multilingual DH group

Dear all,

Following a workshop on doing DH in non-Latin scripts at DH 2019, a group of
people interested in increasing support for DH in languages other than English
has put together a grass-roots initiative to aggregate and annotate information
about existing tools and resources at http://multilingualdh.org/. (Much work
remains to be done on the site, including setting up the infrastructure to
support translating it.)

We also have a mailing list set up for discussion (in any language) of
multilingual DH issues:
https://mailman.stanford.edu/mailman/listinfo/multilingual-dh. All are welcome!

In addition to expanding the infrastructure, content, and translations of the
website, we are in the process of drafting an ADHO SIG proposal. As GO::DH is in
the process of applying to become a CO in order to better advocate for people
doing DH work in areas of the world that don't have a CO, we believe there is
a need for a SIG focused on supporting linguistic diversity in DH. We welcome
input on the proposal in this Google Doc:

There's also a space to add your name as a supporter.

If your DH work involves languages other than English, we’d love to have you
join us! I'm also happy to answer any questions, via email or Twitter

All the best,

Quinn Dombrowski
