Open standards play a crucial role in building customer confidence and
industry support for organizations investigating cross-lingual
applications. Stating his opinion in a recent interview, Mr. Glenn H.
Nordin, Assistant Director (Language), Department of Defense, said that
"language technology tools purchased by the US government are expected
to implement TMX and TBX among other open standards like UNICODE". 

Consistent with the growth and importance of global knowledge management
throughout many worldwide organizations, developers should be aware that
it is in their interests to build applications that will avoid the
establishment of what is commonly referred to as "stovepipes" - systems
that are essentially stand alone and kept alone. Mr. Nordin added:
"Developers as a group need to help their customers understand and use
the standards in writing specifications. Standards from UNICODE through
to LISA's TMX and TBX [the work of the OSCAR standards committee], will
provide the glue to build the virtual translation, translation
management, and knowledge warehouse of the future." 

In these challenging economic times, companies are looking for ways to
leverage their resources to drive revenues and support security at home
and in global markets. LISA features two key sessions focusing on how
Homeland  Security and the ROI of Globalization are shaping the world
view for the US government and companies investing in international
