Language Policy

GLAM Hack would like to follow similar policy guidelines to Europa (the portal site of The European Union), and to provide the public with the information they are looking for in more than one EU languages. However, due to constraints on resources, at the moment this isn’t possible. Therefore, GLAM Hack has decided to communicate its projects, events, activities and services mainly in English (for being accessible by an international audience), and -in specific cases- in Greek (since GLAM Hack team is mainly located in Athens and targets participants living in Greece).  

Every text GLAM Hack writes uses a similar style or tone of voice. This consistency helps people know and trust GLAM Hack. GLAM Hack tries to use short statements and active, not passive, language in order to provide the public with clear and straight to the point information about its projects, events, activities and services. Also, GLAM Hack tries to keep it simple by linking to other pages (instead of repeating what is elsewhere), and by avoiding complex and unnecessary jargon. Also, GLAM Hack never uses slung and insulting words and phrases, because it is important for GLAM Hack to be polite, friendly and welcoming.  

In the near future, GLAM Hack will publish editorial guidelines for participants or users who want to contribute content and/or metadata for its website.

Accessibility Policy

GLAM Hack’s aim is to design its website to be universally accessible by users and user agents/devices. GLAM Hack would like to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, however, due to constraints on resources, at the moment this isn’t possible.

If you have any feedback, questions or suggestions on how to improve the accessibility of the website, please contact GLAM Hack by emailing glam.hack.events@gmail.com
