-- Learn how to internationalize software so it can support users worldwide with minimal additional development effort.
-- Understand the important linguistic and cultural differences that will make-or-break your software's success in international markets.
-- Review internationalization techniques and capabilities built into Solaris, CDE and Motif -- and how to build internationalized Internet applications.
This book can help developers broaden the markets for their products, by providing consistent techniques for internationalizing software -- techniques that do not require extensive redevelopment for each new market.
This book introduces internationalization: an approach to designing and producing generalized software that can then easily be adapted to local markets. It shows how one executable can often be made to run anywhere in the world, and still reflect local linguistic and cultural conventions. It covers a wide range of topics, including: establishing locale environments, encoding character sets, displaying localized text, messaging for program translation, handling language input, and localizing software once it has been internationalized. It presents thorough coverage of internationalization techniques for CDE, Motif and X11. It also covers global Internet applications using Web browsers, HTML, MIME, and NFS. Finally, it discusses preparation of international documentation.
