Office Gemini team ‘ORF’ seeks to alleviate localization woes with Office product releases

Barely 24 hours have passed since Mary-Jo Foley revealed Office Gemini, and now I’ve got a second mention (here’s the first) to bring you from an employee who literally just updated their online resume to include their involvement with the pending upgrade to Office:

In Office Gemini, I moved to lead Office Resource Fabric (ORF) development team to design/implement an innovative localization approach which can eliminate common translation bottlenecks. ORF empowers Office to release our products to global markets/customers at ever increased velocity, scale, and quality, at a low cost.

I thought that mention looked a little too good to be true for just having gone up a day after Office Gemini was revealed, but, sure enough, Google currently has a cached date of 3/18 for that profile (which will inevitably change soon) and the only thing lacking therein is the Office Gemini bit. As such, I think this is yet another good mention.

Anyway, it sounds like Office Gemini is really shaping up to be quite an overhaul, and not just a small set of minor upgrades. The two mentions we have now specifically address significant localization and deployment changes in Office — something I’ve been seeing additional chatter about in regards to Office 16 for a while now.

Whatever the case may be, we still have only everything to learn about Office Gemini, so I’ll keep my nose to the grindstone and see what else I can dig up as we count down the days until Build 2013, where Microsoft will most likely reveal not only the full scope of Blue, but Office Gemini as well.
