Globalization

Globalization (also called internationalization) is the practice of designing and developing software that can be adapted to run in multiple locales. Globalized software does not make assumptions about human language, country, regional, or cultural information based on a single locale. Instead, the software is written to change the locale-specific information it uses to process data and display information to the user based on the configured locale of the operating system, or the personal preference of the user.
