The book is authored by globalization expert Jukka Korpela, who wrote my favorite book on Unicode: Unicode Explained.
Readers of this book will learn:
- How to ensure an application is “world ready” — removing unnecessary language and culture dependencies
- How to leverage the Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR) to support global applications
- How to localize the user interface to address different cultural requirements and expectations
- How to handle text input that falls well outside traditional “A-Z” characters
I’ll have more to share on the book as we get closer to publication. If you’d like to be notified when the book is published, be sure to sign up for the Global by Design newsletter or the Byte Level Books Twitter feed.
