Strategic Move on behalf of Haitian Creole

Mason Integrated Technologies Ltd (MIT2), a developer and service provider
focusing on authoring/translation/workflow applications for Haitian Creole
and other Creole languages, has recently appointed Jeff Allen as Chief
Executive Officer (CEO). Up until now, he has been the Technical Director
at the European Language Resources Association (ELRA) and Distribution
Agency (ELDA). He previously held technical positions on both the Haitian
Creole DIPLOMAT project at the Center for Machine Translation/Language
Technologies Institute of Carnegie Mellon University, and on the Controlled
Language/Machine Translation project at Caterpillar Inc. He brings to MIT2
over 10 years of experience in authoring/translation technologies, Creole
language systems, language technology marketing, language database
compilation, linguistics, language teaching and translation.

Commenting on this new appointment, Marilyn Mason, MIT2 founder,
President, and Chief Operations Officer said, "Jeff's global vision of the
language technology market, his status as a world-recognized expert on
many speech- and text-based technologies, his excellent track record in
documentation workflow processes, his background in the development of
language engineering systems for Creoles and international languages,
and his position as an industry watch and market monitoring analyst of
human language technologies, are all significant aspects of how he will be
a key player to take our company far beyond its current position."

Jeff Allen will remain based in Paris, France and will be combining his
position as CEO of MIT2 with other language technology development
