Abstract
Converging digital technologies and networks, especially the Internet offer considerable scope for individuals and organizations to be authors and publishers with the possibility of getting global response to one's ideas. But there are also several impediments to overcome - existence of a multiplicity of languages, cultural bias, misinterpretation of concepts, non-existence and/or non-acceptance of ideas of one group by people of other cultures and faiths. This paper examines the types of indexes, glossary of terms, organization and presentation of text in different languages/scripts, transliteration of selected text, commentaries, help to correct pronunciation, listing of common errors in rendering text, song, etc. by beginners and people of different cultures and language groups, etc. as means and approaches to mitigate the difficulties of communication across cultures, faiths, and linguistic boundaries. Such provision in typical examples of information resources in the spiritual field - an Internet site, and two CD multimedia - is discussed.
