Diving into I18n and L10n

What do the terms internationalization and localization mean?

Internationalization, often abbreviated I18n, is the process of making a software product translatable. This includes preparing and marking strings for translation, providing utilities to represent data (such as dates/times and numbers) in regional formats, and enabling the software to recognize the user's region/language setting. The last section of this chapter deals in detail with how to internationalize the various components of Zope 3 code.
