Join Dennis Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Timing internationalization and localization, part of Localization for Developers.
- Many developers who don't have experience…with localization can wrongly but very…understandably tell themselves that they have…enough on their plate just trying to get a product…finished and shipped in one language.…They tell themselves they'll worry about it later.…As a result, many projects require some…reengineering down the line.…So when should you start? Now.…And where should you start?…Depending on your product, your company…and your deadlines, the steps that we're about…to go over may happen in a different order…and some steps might overlap or happen…at the same time, but generally the best place…to start is to define your target locales.…
Whenever possible, you should internationalize…with your target locales in mind.…Before you change any of your code, you need…to have a good idea of which locales…are going to be targeted and when.…Ideally, internationalization can be…a "one size fits all" solution.…However, the more locales you're trying to support,…the more work you have ahead of you…to get your code in shape.…
