To support Internationalization (I18n) and Localization (l10n) of eXe we are planning on using the standard GNU gettext library. Experiments with PackTest have shown it works on Linux and Windows and makes it easy to extract the strings requiring translation. We think we will have a simple dropdown list of languages the user can select from, rather than relying on OS specific variables, or the web's Accept-Language header.

An alternative which is emerging is the XLIFF (XML Localization Interchange File Format).

International translation networks

MoinMoin? would be a good example of a multi-OS, Python, web-based internationalized application.
