Minutes of the mozilla.org Staff Meeting of Monday 15th December 2003
Friday December 19th, 2003
The minutes of the mozilla.org staff meeting of Monday 15th December 2003 are now online. Issues discussed include Mozilla 1.6 final, localisations, the mozilla.org website, Mozilla Firebird 0.8, Camino 0.8 and Talkback.
Did they mean i18n or l10n?
I'm not sure if I understand the difference. Is i18n the process of getting an app ready so that l10n for any location is possible? Or in other words, i18n would be making sure no UI strings are hard-coded (and thus suitable for only one language), while l10n would be providing the values for these UI strings (specific to whatever language the l10n was for)?

i18n: internationalization l10n: localization
As if understand Moz stuff wasn't hard enough :)
Yes, you've got it.
Mozilla has a page about internationalisation and localisation which includes an overview and definitions: <http://www.mozilla.org/docs/refList/i18n/#overview>
