ICANN Language Experts
In response to the growing needs of the ICANN community the language services department has been restructured to include more language experts. These experts are well versed in Internet governance and domain knowledge. Under the supervision of Christina Rodriguez four new language experts have been added. The four new additions are Maria Vilardo (French), Jessie Doherty (Chinese), Sabrina Mosquera (Spanish) and Maya Smundak (Russian). Besides working with the ICANN community in terms of their native languages their duties include developing terminology standards, validating third party vendor translation services, maintaining glossaries, and heading translation teams. Their goals are to have a successful department that allows the ICANN community to understand and participate in their native languages. To read further on the topic click here.
