localisation : Java Glossary


Sometimes called internationalisation. Internationalisation is the process of preparing a program so that it will work in multiple locales (countries) and languages. Strictly speaking the terms are not identical. Internationalisation is the process of preparing a system for different pluggable locales, whereas localisation is preparing a program for a specific locale by preparing the translations, localised icons etc.
