Unicode Releases Common Locale Data Repository, Version 1.7.2
The Unicode Consortium has just announced this new release of CLDR (Common Locale Data Repository), the largest and most extensive standard repository of locale data. This data is used for software internationalization and localization: adapting software to the conventions of different languages for such common software tasks as formatting of dates, times, time zones, numbers, and currency values; sorting text; choosing languages or countries by name; transliterating different alphabets; and many others. See more information about the Unicode CLDR project (including charts).
New article: Choosing a Language Tag
FAQ-based article: Which language tag is right for me? How do I choose language and other subtags?
Following the publication of RFC 5646 earlier this year (replacing RFC 4646 as part of BCP 47), the IANA Subtag Registry now contains almost 8,000 subtags, and the list of subtag types was increased with the introduction of extended language subtags. This article tries to simplify the choice of an appropriate language tag for your needs by outlining the necessary decisions in a step-wise fashion.
