ELS is not ESL, or SLE, or SEL, or LES

Extended Linguistic Services.

It is something I first mentioned last week, in From ____ to ____ to MUI to ELS -- World Ready @ the PDC!.

You should also note that Kieran is talking about it in her blog (ref: What's new for you in Windows 7: Extended Linguistic Services).

That blog of hers points to place on the Go Global site that talk about ELS with a nice huge paper, entitled Writing World-Ready Applications in Windows: Extended Linguistic Services in Windows 7. that paper has it all, from the whys to the features to the design to the API definition to some code samples.

A very good start for people who want substantive information about ELS and what's coming.

If you have the PDC build of windows 7 you can evn start playing with it (otherwise you'll have to wait for the beta or whatever).

I'll be talking more about ELS eventually (mainly when it is more widely available to people). In the meantime, Kieran's blog and this paper should keep occupied those who are interested, for a bit. :-)

The blog also points to a live ELS demo, being used by the Live team....
