Hello all in cyberland.

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to help the
Webmasters Association (http://www.irwa.org/ ), the first ever professional
organization for Webmasters, to develop our new Language Centre.

We would like the Language Centre to be the definitive resource for 
internationalization of the World Wide Web; we want to make the Web truly
world-wide.  Once fully instituted, the IWA Language Centre plans to offer
services for translation of Web documents, on-line courses for Webmaster
certification with regards to internationalization, software and hardware
reviews and Beta testing, and a wide variety of other offerings. These will
be available with the help of our language committees, which are
made up of various Webmaster professionals.  

We want to design the IWA Language Centre to fill the needs of all
Webmasters interested in internationalization and to do this we would like
your input.  

Therefore, please fill out the following survey for us to further help you.
All answers will be kept strictly confidential and will not be released
to anyone outside of the survey committee for any purposes other than as
mass data collection.  We will post all results.

Please forward all completed surveys to me at LCdirector@irwa.org
Thank you for your time,
Richard L. Tuttle,
Language Centre Director
International Webmasters Association
President of
Tuttle Translations & Consulting
