Comprehende?

Published on Friday, 30 September 2005
One of the most profound issues I've had to deal with being a web designer and developer for both small business and multinational corporate clients is the use and abuse of internationalisation.
I've had scripts which have required calendar functionality to be disabled so people can actually use the software, much to the chagrin of the employed usability expert (myself). I've seen good, bad and indifferent implementations of language and code formatting for translation. I've seen event management online forms which make no sense outside of the US being used in Australian and NZ clientele.


More than the need to get things working cross platform (desktop to PDA to phone) internationalisation is an issue that needs to be clearly addressed, and consistently addressed across all systems, either in a custom solution, in CMS systems through code like Joomla!fish, or in code validation that actually works.
