Internationalization Cookbook
This is my personal blog. The views expressed on these pages are mine alone and not those of my employer.

Getting started

Starting somewhere at the beginning of 2001 I have posted the first answer on an internationalization question.

After about 4 years of answering internationalization and localization questions, mostly on, but not only, it seems that some of the questions come up again and again: “why do I get question marks when I paste Japanese in resource editor?”, “I have an application, never localized, but now I have to bite the bullet and do it. How do I start?”

So I was thinking about puting together an FAQ, or a site with “recipes”, but I was just a bit too lazy to start. Then I have discovered that my news reader (XNews) saved all my answers. And everything seamed a bit easyer :-)

So here it is. I am not sure how it will evolve. I know that for now I want to add a contact form, some categories and a search to help finding things. Make it work like a real cookbook: search the recipe, find the solution. I do not plan to make a blog here, but who knows :-)
