CLDR and Globalize


#1

Hi folks,

I have been digging around in various i18n packages, and so far my
team is leaning toward Globalize, it seems like an active and usable
project.

Question:

How is the data in globalize/trunk/data/ populated?

I’m not sure if this has been discussed in this list, but there is a
huge amount of localization information in the Common Locale Data
Repository (CLDR):

(Not only is the data extensive, it’s also localized into several
languages – you can get at how to say “Japanese” in Spanish, “Russia”
in Swahili, etc.)

It seems like tracking the data in CLDR would be much easier to
maintain than trying to maintain the data just for the Globalize
project.

Best regards,

Pat Hall
