Required Skill Sets

Developing the Handbook requires two major kinds of skill sets:

  • Domain expertise, e.g., linguistic information for each of the languages being documented.
  • Software development skills for building infrastructure capable of processing indian language text.

One of the requirements for the Handbook is that it be capable of documenting languages that do not have standard character encodings or font encodings (for example, indian language scripts not covered by Unicode). The other requirement for the Handbook is that it should be buildable and usable on platforms that lack built-in support for the languages being described.
