Internationalization and Localization

Debian wiki's internationalization (i18n) and localization (l10n) portal.


Debian has many services, softwares, interfaces and infrastructures to handle the complexity of its operations. Most of these mechanisms were built using English as the primary (and many times, the only) language. In order to cope with its "universal operating system" motto, many efforts are made to internationalize, localize and translate all possible interfaces:

  • I18N (internationalization) means modification of a software or related technologies so that a software can potentially handle multiple languages, customs, and so on in the world.

  • L10N (localization) means implementation of a specific language for an already internationalized software.

  • Introduction to i18n, Tomohiro KUBOTA
