During this talk Eemeli will explore and review the current tools, libraries and specifications available for localization and message formatting in JavaScript. Eemeli will share with you everything from framework-specific front-end libraries to server-side tools. What to take into account when selecting your own solutions, including integration with other languages and systems as well as the needs and expectations of translators. Noting in particular which early decisions are significant and hard to reverse later, and which are trivial to refactor. Eemeli will also feature a brief look at where the current specification work is at, and where it might be going next.

The State of the Art in Localization

Eemeli Aro

Eemeli has discovered that writing code is much more enjoyable when you don’t need to account for your hours to anyone. On the other hand, this does mean that you end up going ever deeper to fix things. He maintains the messageformat and yaml JS libraries along with a host of others, and actively participates in various efforts to improve JavaScript localization. For work, he mostly develops libraries and tools for customers’ front-end development teams. For fun, he organises science fiction conventions. Eemeli is a voting member of the OpenJS Foundation Cross Project Council, an active participant in ECMA-402 processes, runs the monthly HelsinkiJS meetups, and helps organise React Finland conferences.
