This is written in response to:

"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.

On a guess, is it possible that L10N is "Localization?" (sort of the
opposite idea from "Internationalization.") It fits the pattern Vicki


Doug Farm policy, although it's complex,
ENGSTROMDD -at- phibred -dot- com can be explained. What it can't be
is believed.
