i18n (Internationalization)

The term i18n comes from the desire not to write down the rather long word, internationalization, which starts with an i followed by 18 other letters before ending with an n - i18n. The subject of i18n deals with making your content and/or interface usable across nations, dialects and cultures. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Translated labels and other content
  • Formatting of numbers
  • Formatting of dates

The Preside admin interface provides a translation system to allow you to define the system's labels and descriptions in a standard way that allows translation. Date and number formatting is a work in progress.

This is a work in progress and requires further work. Checkout the [[about]] page if you're keen on contributing.
