The Unicode Consortium is pleased to announce that Salesforce has joined as
a full member.

“Salesforce is pleased to join the Unicode Consortium and advance the
ability for software to reach people in their native and local languages,”
said Teresa Marshall, VP, Globalization and Localization, Salesforce.

In addition to Salesforce joining as a full member, Marshall was also
elected to the Consortium’s Board of Directors. At Salesforce, Marshall
drives globalization efforts, including internationalization, international
product management and localization. She started her career as a German
linguist and has held program and operational management positions at a
number of Silicon Valley companies, as well as academic positions in the
field of language translation. Teresa holds an MA in Translation and
Interpreting from the Monterey Institute of International Studies.

“We are delighted to have Salesforce join as our newest full member,” said
Mark Davis, President, Unicode Consortium. “As platforms grow to serve a
growing international user base, it becomes increasingly important to invest
in and develop standards that allow efficient support of local languages.
Unicode exists for precisely that purpose.”

Full members of the Consortium have a vote in all technical committees, and
in the governance of the Consortium. A full list of Consortium members can
