Internationalization

Introduction

Internationalization is the process of designing a software application or product so that it can potentially be adapted to multiple languages and regions to support global markets. Central to internationalization is the ability to show the character sets and support the local standards of a particular language and country. For example, before a software product can be translated into Japanese, it must support double-byte characters by using Unicode character support.

Localization is the process of adapting the internationalized software for a specific region, language, or market by adding locale-specific components such as adopting local currencies, using proper format for numbers, dates, time, and addresses.

Internationalization and localization combined handle the process of product translation and the cultural adaptation for specific countries or regions to account for differences in distinct markets.

Order Management supports localization in order to enable employees, merchants, and partners worldwide with the ability to display user interface page elements and process data.

Internationalization includes:

Currently, Customer Service Center, Fulfillment Center, and Retail Center modules in Order Management are translated into English, French, or German. All Order Management modules are localized for multi-currency, global address support, time zones, numbers, and dates.
