Internationalizing JavaScript Applications

Somewhere on the way to global success, you’ll have to get your software ready to support different human languages and cultures. For software written in JavaScript it’s not obvious how to start, as the ECMAScript standard defining the core of JavaScript has so far offered little help. This talk surveys what the new ECMAScript Internationalization API and various libraries provide to make the task easier, and how you can best take advantage of them.

Norbert Lindenberg is an internationalization consultant and the editor of the ECMAScript Internationalization API Specification, a standard under development that will define a core set of internationalization capabilities for JavaScript. He studied computer science at Universität Karlsruhe and internationalization at Apple Computer, and then led internationalization projects at General Magic, Sun Microsystems, and Yahoo!.
