Project poster

The Language Metadata Table (LMT) is a standard set of language codes used in the media and entertainment industries. The LMT Working Group received several sets of requests for new language code additions and updates. I compared these requests to the existing coverage, performed background research to prepare the languages for ingesting, and made recommendations for inclusion. As a result, 95 languages have been sent to the LMT Working Group for review and inclusion, for an increase in coverage of almost 40%, while an additional 83 were sent to subcommittees and partner organizations for further review and discussion.
