Language technologies and tools (hereafter called language resources) increasingly require sophisticated infrastructures to share, deploy as services, and combine for supporting research, development, innovation and collaboration. To meet this need, several infrastructures have been already established over the past few years, and others are being built or planned, such as Language Grid, LAPPS Grid, META-SHARE, MLi, and PANACEA. Worldwide Language Service Infrastructure 2015 (WLSI 2014) is an international workshop focused on addressing technological and institutional challenges that are significant to construct a worldwide interoperable language service infrastructure. WLSI 2013 was initiated by focusing on the direction of Asian area as a part of the worldwide language service infrastructure, and a related workshop, Language Technology Service Platforms: Synergies, Standards, Sharing (LTSP 2014), was held at LREC 2014. The aim of WLSI is to provide a forum to enhance international cooperation and sustainable collaboration among worldwide initiatives.
