In this paper we present the European Union-funded eContent project WebALT—Web Advanced Learning Technologies. The authors' group is building a "significant application which exploits a combination of existing standards for representing mathematics on the web (e.g. MathML and OpenMath) and linguistic technologies in order to enable the creation of language-independent mathematical content" in the form of a web-based repository of exercises for mathematics students. This mathematical content will be particularly well suited for localization in a multilingual and multicultural environment, because problems will be stored in the language-independent form of content markup and generated for several linguistic and cultural contexts.
