Somewhere on the way to global success, you’ll have to get your software ready to support different human languages and cultures. For software written in JavaScript it’s not obvious how to start, as the ECMAScript standard defining the core of JavaScript offers little help. This talk surveys what the new ECMAScript Internationalization API and various libraries provide to make the task easier, and how you can best take advantage of them.
