The document linked below is VERY good, short reading on the current
state of the art in Internationalization. Richard Ishida (now chair
of W3C I18N projects) was for many years the senior most expert at
Xerox in the UK on internationalization. Many of the world's top
experts are active in the W3C I18N GEO (Globalization, Education,
and Outreach) task force.
W3C I18N GEO plans to follow the excellent example of the W3C WAI
(Web Accessibility Initiative) in publishing practical, detailed
guidelines for: developers, translators, testers, etc.
