World Language Resources, Inc. (WLR), the online provider of a selection of language-related products, has announced that it now offers Alis Technologies' Tango Browser v.3.1 on its Web site at http://www.worldlanguage.com. According to the announcement, Tango is a high-performance, multilingual Internet browser that makes Web pages that have been developed many of more than 90 languages readable in the user's preferred language.
