Better Localization

Wednesday, 21 October 2009

Wil Shipley:

In this post I’m going to explain to you what internationalization and localization are, how Apple’s tools handle them by default, and the huge flaws in Apple’s approach. Then I’m going to provide you with the code and tools to do localization in a much, much easier way.

Both of these topics are often very painful and a lot of work if you don’t do it the right way. Shipley provides a nice solution. If someone will ask me about localization I’ll point him to this article and tell him it’s a must-read.
