L20n is a localization framework developed by Mozilla for the Web. It allows localizers to put small bits of logic into localization resources to codify the grammar of the language. L20n’s framework removes the need for developers to thoroughly understand the specifics of a natural language and provides an opportunity for localizers to create better translations.
L20n reinvents software localization. Users should be able to benefit from the entire expressive power of a natural language. L20n keeps simple things simple, and at the same time makes complex things possible. You can take advantage of HTML bindings to localize your HTML documents with L20n.
