We have currently these i18n related tags:

They both describe technically different approaches, but I doubt that the average AN.SX users is aware of this. On Android i18n is the way to go, yet the majority of the questions is tagged with "localization".

I suggest merging all i18n related tags into one tag. But I am not sure which tag it should be.

  • It probably makes sense for them to be synonyms. If localization is the majority, that's what I'd go with. It also makes more sense to me -- users want the device to be localized, the don't care if the manufacturer has fully internationalized. Commented Oct 9, 2011 at 15:22
  • @MatthewRead That's what I meant with merging. Make "internationalization" and "i18n" synonyms of "localization". :)

  • Seems reasonable to me.
