pyra.locales

Functions related to localization.

Localization (also referred to as l10n) is the process of adapting a product or service to a specific locale. Translation is only one of several elements in the localization process. In addition to translation, the localization process may also include: - Adapting design and layout to properly display translated text in the language of the locale - Adapting sorting functions to the alphabetical order of a specific locale - Changing formats for date and time, addresses, numbers, currencies, etc. for specific target locales - Adapting graphics to suit the expectations and tastes of a target locale - Modifying content to suit the tastes and consumption habits of a target locale

The aim of localization is to give a product or service the look and feel of having been created specifically for a target market, no matter their language, cultural preferences, or location.
