Internationalize or Localize?

Q:
What is the difference between internationalization and localization?

A:

Internationalization (i18n) is the process of generalizing a product so that it can handle multiple languages and cultural conventions, without the need for redesign. Internationalization takes place at the program design and document development level. Localization (L10n), on the other hand, takes place after the product/documents are internationalized, meaning that localization refers to the process of taking a product and making it linguistically and culturally appropriate to the target locale (country/region and language) where it will be sold and used.
