Writing software that is truly multilingual is not an easy task. In this excerpt from Chapter 8 of Java Examples in a Nutshell, 3rd Edition, author David Flanagan offers programming examples for the three steps to internationalization in Java: using Unicode character encoding, handling local customs, and localizing user-visible messages.
rating comment: The article covers the basics of internationalization, nothing more! The most interesting part is about Java's character encoding, but it also covers only the fundamentals.
