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.
