Hi Monique,

I would go with two and a comma, that is: "non-native,
English-speaking development team."

Hello, WR-L-ers,

It seems that all three hyphens would be need in this sentence: "My
initial source material was a Word document authored by the
non-native-English-speaking development team." But a three-hyphen
string seems odd!

Is this correct?
