From Characters to Web Services - to Internationalization is Everywhere (26 Dec 2005)
This article has two purposes. First, it shows that internationalization is relevant for a wide range of technologies: character encoding, bidirectional text, text formatting, character processing, datatype specific issues etc. The article gives a brief overview of some of these technologies, without being exhaustive. Second, the article discusses chances and challenges for possibly new areas of internationalization like internationalized web services or markup for internationalization purposes. The conclusion emerging from these discussions is that the nature of "internationalization" depends on the technology in question. For each technology there are new chances and challenges for internationalization.
