We recently met at the ELSnet/MLnet workshop in Amsterdam (a report

4. Elections

The current officers and advisory committee arose from the Vienna
workshop on Machine Learning and Text Analysis (held at ECML, Easter
93) and have steered SIGNLL through the process of gaining ACL SIG
status. We will be holding formal elections, in accordance with our
constitution, on 26th May, by electronic mail to or by filling in a
WWW form which will be available from the SIGNLL WWW server. More
information will be available to members soon.

I have uploaded to SimTel, the Coast to Coast Software Repository (tm),
(available by anonymous ftp from the primary mirror site OAK.Oakland.Edu
and its mirrors):

SimTel/win3/lang/ Galician-English-Spanish computer dictionary

WinGlos 2.1 is a trilingual (Galician-English-Spanish) dictionary of
computing, in the form of a hypertextual document for Microsoft Windows
Help version 3.1, with 500 terminological entries including Galician
term, grammatical category of Galician term, English term and Spanish
term. Some entries contain a short context of the term, with the aim of
ellucidating possible ambiguities about the use and meaning of the term.
You can access any entry selecting the Galician, English or Spanish term
from the alphabetical lists provided by WinGlos.

Special requirements: MS-Windows 3.1 (with its Help program WINHELP.EXE).
