This page provides checklists for specification developers, editors and reviewers who want to take account of internationalization issues while developing their spec. Where a checklist item is followed by a link, click on that for more information. The page also lists links to useful resources on the W3C Internationalization Activity site and elsewhere that may help.
Use of this checklist doesn't remove the need for a formal review, but warns of potential issues and requirements, at an early stage, that might otherwise be overlooked. Therefore, the later review should yield few, if any, nasty surprises. It also provides a useful set of points for reviewers to follow. The checklist is currently still in development, however, and will be subject to regular changes. If you have a question or issue with some advice, contact the i18n Working Group.
