Internationalizing Your Applications

  • Brett Spell


Occasionally software applications are used by only a small number of people within a limited geographic area, but it has become increasingly common for an application to be used by many people in different parts of the world. In some cases, it’s possible to require all your application’s users to understand a single language and use the same symbols and formatting for items such as dates, times, and numeric values. However, most users prefer to work with the language and formatting conventions they’re most comfortable with, and by taking that into consideration when designing your application, you can accommodate their wishes.
