A hands-on guide for taking JavaScript applications global

As developers expand JavaScript applications to serve users around the world, problems typically arise regarding the best way to handle new languages, locales, dates, and measurements. This book is designed to help. Going Global with JavaScript and Globalize.js is unique in its focus on globalization, internationalization, and localization issues.

The books helps make JavaScript applications world-ready and easily adapted to different human languages, notational conventions, and user interface preferences. The solutions and methods included range from simple programming constructs to elaborate techniques that use available information for hundreds of human languages, such as the Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR).

There is a special focus on the emerging Globalize.js library, which provides data sets for more than 300 cultures, as well as the ability to develop custom cultures.

The techniques included in this book, which are not readily found elsewhere, are easy to learn and apply.

Who should read this book

This book is written for web and software developers, as well as program managers and designers. While knowledge of JavaScript is preferred, readers who simply want to understand the JavaScript locale concept and its limitations will find this book valuable.

If you're developing JavaScript applications for use in different languages and countries, this book will help you avoid potentially costly and time-consuming mistakes. More important, this book will help you make the most of existing JavaScript libraries so you can more efficiently develop global applications.
