I am a Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Saint Louis University in the United States. My main interest is in the Irish language, and I've been translating software into Irish since the late 1990's (GNU software, Firefox,, KDE, ...). I've also worked with many other minority language groups around the world to develop basic computing resources: keyboards, spell checkers, electronic dictionaries, etc. I am a strong advocate for open source software and open data as the only means for small language groups to develop technology in a sustainable way. Working with Wikimedia fits naturally with this philosophy.
