Internationalization (i18n)

Internationalization (often abbreviated to i18n) is an important consideration when developing a web script.

For human-readable web script responses it is often necessary to render the output in the preferred language of the user or the preferred language of the client. This means that human-readable text cannot be placed directly in the web script response template.

Therefore, the Web Script Framework uses the common practice of allowing text to be placed into resource bundles, where a resource bundle exists for each supported language.
