On the Internet, there are almost no barriers against international commerce. Except for language. Unfortunately, most software is still written in English. This text shows how to write software that is truly multi-lingual, using Java's very sophisticated internationalization facilities. English-only software is already obsolete. This text explores Java Unicode and provides concrete examples for using its features to create multi-lingual user interfaces, to correctly format currency, dates and times, and to ensure font support for different languages.

Author Biography - Andy Deitsch
David Czarnecki is a Computer Scientist in the Information Laboratory at the GE Corporate Research and Development Center in Niskayuna, NY. He is involved with various e-commerce initiatives and projects, and in recent months has become increasingly involved in providing expertise on how to properly internationalize software. David holds both B.S and M.S. degrees in Computer Science. Andy Deitsch is a software engineer who manages an e-business group at GE's Corporate Research and Development Center. Andy was fortunate enough to be involved in the beta release of Java in 1995 and has been programming in the language ever since. The inspiration for this book came from his efforts to use Java effectively to build internationalized applications and his frustrations in not finding any books related to this important topic.
