The Wikipedia engineering team presented on open source tools and technologies it has developed for supporting 285 languages across Wikipedia websites. Wikipedia's internationalization tools include input method tools (IMEs) such as onscreen keymaps to allow contributors to create content in their own language as well as on-demand open WebFonts to render and read languages in non-Roman scripts.

Wikipedia engineering participants include Alolita Sharma (Director of Engineering), Niklas Laxstrom (Software Engineer), Santhosh Thottingal (Software Engineer), Amir Aharoni (Software Engineer), Siebrand Mazeland (Product Manager), Pau Giner (User experience expert), Arun Ganesh (UI designer).

Alolita Sharma is on the advisory board of The Commons Initiative at SF State (http://commons.sfsu.edu/people)
