Linguist, Wikipedian, musician, coder.

I am an aficionado of software internationalization. I am experienced with translating MediaWiki, Firefox, Twitter, OpenStreetMap and a bunch of other products. I develop internationalization software myself in the Wikimedia Foundation.

I have zero tolerance to bugs in right-to-left text display.

I love the web and I am a Mozillian.

I mostly code in PHP and JavaScript, though my favorite language is Perl.

comment Sentence with two not-so-related parts
This sounds kinda right, but I can't browse that book on Amazon, and I can't find the definition of "preface" elsewhere (I tried several books about English grammar on Questia). If there's nothing else online, I guess that I'll try to find it in a library.

comment Sentence with two not-so-related parts
@AndrewLeach - I mostly ask about the name for this type of sentence. The structure of my example and of the "Inventor of the automatic railway crossing" example is the same and I want to know its name.
