A Strategy for i18n and Node.js

You know when Resig posts it’s worth reading, and this is no exception.

Recently I internationalized a Node/Express web application that I’ve been working on and it seems to have gone fairly well (users in multiple languages are using it happily and I’m seeing a marked increase in traffic because of it!). Not much of what I’m writing up here is particular to Node, per se, just a general strategy for internationalizing a web application.

Localization is a really important issue that I leave until last, even when I’ve got WordPress to back me up with it’s full implementation. I’m getting better over time at accommodating translations, and WordPress keeps adding features making it too easy to implement. It’s interesting to read the full implementation from John’s perspective on a recent application he built.
