While you are "internationalized" to a particular country, you work according to your own time zone schedule. This is where localization is used. You can localize your GUI code.
- [Instructor] In the previous video,…we looked at changing the entire GUI language.…This video will discuss localizing our GUI.…In this video, we will convert the local time of the USA…in the USA West Coast to UTC,…and then display the USA East Coast time in our GUI.…After the first step of internationalizing our GUI,…the next step is to localize it.…Why would we wish to do this?…Well, we all live in different timezones around the world.…
So, while we are internationalized to a particular country,…we wake up in different timezones and do expect to eat…according to our own timezone schedule, don't we?…This is where localization comes in.…We are extending the GUI we developed…in the previous video by localizing it.…How do we do it?…We start by first installing…the Python pytz timezone module using Pip.…Let's open the command prompt and type pip install pytz.…
When successful, we'll get this result.…This shows that the command downloaded the .whl format.…If you have not done so,…you might have to install the Python Wheel module first.…
