Internationalization Best Practices for Agile Teams


Other Considerations
Other basic I18n best practices should apply to all your work, including avoiding the use of concatenation techniques to create user-visible strings, allowing for expansion of text, and how to avoid possible coding issues related to the apostrophe mark (‘), and others. But those are topics for another time. We hope that your key take-away from this article is understanding the value of incorporating I18n best practices. like externalizing strings and conducing pseudo-language testing as in-sprint actions. Happy internationalizing!
