“Best Social Innovation” award for Multikulti

The Institute for Social Inventions has judged the MKDoc Multikulti resource providing access to important information and advice on a range of issues through a multi-language website to be the Best Social Innovation for the year 2004 in the Communications Category.

Multikulti is in good company, the previous year this award went to the Creative Commons organisation.

The Institute is an educational charity founded in 1985 and based in London, with patrons including: Brian Eno, Anita Roddick, and Charles Handy. Schemes around the world are drawn to the Institute's attention by its international correspondents and are judged by the directors of the Institute.

Multikulti is a community site constructed entirely with the MKDoc Content Management System. It is aimed at supporting citizenship through the delivery of appropriate and accurately translated information in welfare law. This site contains the following features:

  • Multikulti uses Unicode throughout. This provides a universal way of encoding characters of any language, regardless of the computer system or platform being used.

  • The translated documents are displayed as text which makes full use of MKDoc's multilingual and workflow capabilities. Because Unicode is plain text, the site complies with accessibility standards even on translated pages.

  • Users can search in different languages.

  • Additional features of this site include navigation aids, a sitemap, help page and local agency finder.
