I've seen Internationalization expressed as I18N (meaning the process of
making software ready to be used in multiple countries/languages). Given
that, I would
guess that L10N is "localization" (meaning the process of
a piece of software for use in one particular country/language).

"I18N" is "internationalization," a hacker-style shorthand guaranteed
to be opaque to non-native speakers of English and even many native
speakers. (Given the goal of internationalization, I find this ironic.)
I don't know what L10N is; sorry.
