Has anyone noticed that the mailing list nickname for
Internationalisation is i10n instead of i18n?
wrong, it's L10n (L-ten-N, for localization).
The name is derived from the phonetic pronounciation of
Intern-EIGHTEEN-alisatioN hence i18n.
i10n is a short name for localisation, which by definition is
formatting like numbers, dates and money.
i18n can encompass i10n by definition.
I think you're wrong, and the following is correct:
* Localization is the top layer, which includes interface translation,
the things you mentioned and other adaptations for a particular LOCAL
market (e.g. icons)
* Internationalization (I18n) is the precondition for making L10n
possible. This includes handling of foreign data, data sorting, correct
handling of currency, date and time formats, casing etc.
* The bigger process that covers both of the processes above is
sometimes called Globalization (G11n), I think.
