I am extremely happy and proud to let you know BlueGriffon received last thursday in Berlin, Germany, the « META Seal of Recognition » Award from the Multilingual Europe Technology Alliance for being the very first editor to implement the three main data categories of the W3C Internationalization Tag Set 2.0 (ITS 2.0)
That implementation was done under a contract from DFKI and funding from the European Commission (project LT-Web), 7th Framework Programme (FP7), grant agreement n° 287815. The code is Open Source and will be available with forthcoming version 1.8 of BlueGriffon.
Here is the press release about it:
At the fourth annual META-FORUM
conference in Berlin on September 19/20, it was announced that Disruptive
Innovations was awarded the META Seal of Recognition for BlueGriffon. The META
Seal of Recognition recognises excellence in software, products, and services
which actively contribute to the European Multilingual Information Society. The

Technology landscape, recognises the contribution BlueGriffon makes to the European Multilingual Information Society.
