Plan Overview » Objective: 1. Evolve and further globalize ICANN » Goal: 1.1 Further globalize and regionalize ICANN functions

Portfolio: Language Services


Make information about ICANN and its work accessible to those who speak languages other than English in ways that enhance participation in, and the effectiveness of, the multistakeholder model. ICANN's translations are available in the six United Nations languages – Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), English, French, Russian and Spanish – to make ICANN more effective as a global organization. More languages are being supported to promote inclusion. We do this in two ways:  By providing support to hub and engagements offices, such as Turkish for the Istanbul hub.  By promoting the Translation/Localization Kit Program, where ICANN Language Services works with the community to translate documents into languages not supported within the UN set of languages. These languages include Japanese, Korean, and some others. ICANN Language Services also promotes teleconference interpretation support in the six United Nations languages for all working group calls and any other teleconference call where the presence of support of availability of other languages may increase and facilitate participation.
