I18N made easy...

The tower of Babel was yesterday...

General concepts of i18n4java

The idea of how to integrate such messages was borrowed from the C++ framework QT which is the base for KDE and a lot of successful, internationalized applications. For more information have a look to http://qt.nokia.com

At first for I18N there are two major issues to be solved:

  1. Handling of localization information
  2. Formatting capabilities for translations where the order of parameters wihtin a message string can be changed

Localization (L10N)

Due to Java's excellent L10N framework is the localization information handled within this. The main class for that is Locale.
