Internationalization (sometimes shortened to “I18N”): Is the process of planning and implementing products and services so they can be easily adapted to specific locales, languages and cultures. This is particularly important for websites, software and web authoring tools.
I18N ensures that your website design will:
- have enough space for translation
- support international character sets
- written examples and marketing tactics will use global meanings
Internationalizing your website or software sets you up to successfully localize your products and services.
