Content collaboration is KING

On my way back from Delhi, I was watching in-flight entertainment on Jet airways and came across an interview of Ajai Chowdhry and Shiv Nadar of HCL.

Ajai Chowdhry said that the future of web is in providing content in multiple languages. I completely agree with this view, but would like to extend the same to say that content collaboration in multiple languages and formats would be the KING.

And by multiple languages, am not just referring to French and Chinese versions. With computers being a daily necessity, OS being made available in different languages and broadband, we are moving into a scenario where these would be made available to even those who are not very proficient in English, but have lots to add to this internet world.

I was surfing net to see if any study has been done to know how many languages (Indian) are needed, but in absence of that, think the language in which Microsoft is making its OS available, would definitely boom.

Imagine India with Blogs/wikis/social networking sites in local languages with a touch button transliteration feature. This would provide a platform for Publication houses to become big and launch their own online production houses!

Content collaboration in multiple language and formats would be the key to success in future!
