I encountered a new contraction last night: G11N, or “Globalisation’, in the IT sense.
Darren Moffat provided the following explanation:
L10N, I18N, G11N, A11Y are all separate things.
- L10N is the act of translation of messages from one language to another
- I18N is the act of making the code be able to use l10n
- G11N is making sure that things are translatable and non-offensive in other cultures.
- A11Y is accessibility [visual impairment, etc]
All clear, now?
